The Very Popular, Miss Emily

Yikes, it finally happened. The flock of curious tourists descended on our local shipwreck, the Emily G. Reed. More media coverage in Portland and a long holiday holiday weekend resulted in a steady stream of camera-toting, amateur archeologists arriving in Rockaway. Why is a rare occurrence.

We plopped down on driftwood "bench" , soaked up the sun and watched the show. It was a strange feeling as we have had her to ourselves in the past.

Note: another 48 feet or so has been exposed since our last visit bringing the total length to 120 feet.
