Day 152 – Busted 2 Days Straight
It was another morning of capturing some photos at the shipwreck of Buster in Woolgoolga early today – even earlier than yesterday. I had hoped that the tide would be lower and I would be able to get around the other side, but no such luck.
The Buster beached itself after breaking free of 2 anchors and a buoy during wild weather on 17/2/1893 – 119 years ago, and is usually mostly covered in sand. It has been showing itself around every 3 years after heavy rain and large tides wash away the sand. The final resting place of the Buster is about 1km north of Woolgoolga on the main beach near Lakeside Caravan Park.
