Branscombe

This is taken on the beach just outside Sidmouth, looking east towards Branscombe. The blob that can be seen on the sea is the back half of the 'Napoli'. This is the container ship that ran aground here, shedding its containers, which washed up on Branscombe Beach where there was a salvage bonanza, some people wheeling off brand new BMW bikes. They cut the ship in half and the bows were towed to Belfast. The stern was too big to move and had to be cut up on site. Shortly after this picture was taken the white section that can be seen, which is the bridge superstructure, was removed.
My contact with the internet is going to be tenuous at best over the next few weeks so I may have trouble posting for a while. I'll look forward to an enormous backlog of pictures to view when I re-establish contact.
