Deconstructing Riverdance


Had the opportunity to slip up to Clevelys yesterday to see how the breaking up of the Riverdance ferry was progressing. This is taken from the south side of the wreck with the frames of an earlier shipwreck emerging from the sand, I did once know the name of this earlier wreck but seem to have forgoten it for the moment..

Like scavengers picking at the carcass of a dead whale.
Les Auld: Very true Ian, thanks for the comment.
I think this is the wreck of the Abana, Les. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abana_(barque)

Although on the doorstep I have not been near since they started cutting it up. Must have a peak.
Les Auld: Thanks for the information Alistair, just looked it up and yuo are right. Looks like there may be time for a couple of visits more before they finally remove it all.
I think Ian has summed it up perfectly.
Les Auld: So he has Bill, thanks for the comment.
It's funny how the media move on and one forgets what has gone by Les. Thanks for reminding us of this event and bringing us up to date with this excellent shot.
Les Auld: Man cuts up ship -no longer news Brian. Thanks for the comment.
I can understand you using the beach timber work in this Les ... But somehow I find it a distraction, what with me being a land lubber 80 mile from the nearest bit of coast. I'm really interested in the dis-assembling of the cargo ship and almost sense a tear in my eye ....nah joking.

I just scrolled the image a bit and pretty well eliminated the beach groynes ... try it Les

Les Auld: Each to their own Richard, there is a picture of the ship without the old timbers on my Flickr site. Thanks for the comment.
