On my way to work after a storm at Brighton, East Sussex, I spotted this ship washed up on the shore near the Place Pier. She was called the Athina B.
It was quite an event and one which the whole family went down to enjoy. There are lots of articles written about this boat as you would expect so I will spare the detail. For me it was a strange feeling, to stand on the shingle and wonder at the power of the waves and moving water which had brought this ship ashore. As the picture shows the storm had done it’s work and now the water looked benign. Gently the ship would rise and fall as a minor swell came in but, for us, the old skimming stones pastime drew us all to the waters edge.
