Fiery Sea

The sunrise was quite spectacular shining through the waves as they crashed over the wreck.
A short walk from the road at Dicky Beach you will come across the wreck of the S.S. Dicky. This is the only patrolled beach in the World that has it’s name from a Ship Wreck.
“S.S. Dicky”, carrying 11 crew and 40 tonnes of sand, was forced onto the beach during heavy seas in 1893.
Attempts to refloat the ship were unsuccessful. A memorial stands in the park at Dicky Beach near the caravan park.
Sunshine Coast, Caloundra QLD, Australia.
