Gulf Coast 3 – Hillsborough Beach – Abandon Ship

 At the end of Hillsborough Beach near the airport in Carriacou we found this boat.

P1000455

It was beautiful and somehow frightening at the same time.

P1000516

I had to take a bunch of pictures so I wouldn’t have to rely on my memories.

P1000477

I felt like a ghost.

P1000512

Someone told us they thought is was washed ashore in one of the hurricanes around 2004/5, but Stanley our cab driver said it was much more recent.

P1000521

Like a plant growing out of a sidewalk. It reminds me that the earth will take it all back.

P1000469

The inside of the boat really heightened my sense of mortality.

P1000468

The light through the hole in the boat’s deck reflected in the green water below.

P1000466

Taking these pictures was one of the high points of my trip.
