Artist's Description

According to Peter Iredale – Wikipedia, the Peter Iredale “was a four-masted steel barque sailing vessel that ran ashore October 25, 1906, on the Oregon coast en route to the Columbia River. It was abandoned on Clatsop Spit near Fort Stevens in Warrenton about four miles (6 km) south of the Columbia River channel. Wreckage is still visible, making it a popular tourist attraction as one of the most accessible shipwrecks of the Graveyard of the Pacific.”

The bones of this vessel is a sight to behold, especially when the sun is going down and your seeing it with someone you love that has never been to the beach before. I’m looking forward to seeing it again. I once had a conversation with an online friend where I compared my inner child to that of a ship wreck. I made that conversation into prose. Someday, I will share it all, but here’s an excerpt:

I think there is a little girl in my mind that has yet to grow
trapped in the past, emerging in the present… yet fearful of the future
She’s ensnared in an emotional wreckage of a churning sea
A ship’s skeleton of decaying, broken wood; forgotten and laying on the bed
of a murky, dim ocean
