So I'm aimlessly driving around the beach in Assateague Island looking for the wild Assateague horses and spot a big chunk of wood in the surf.
Looks like a piece of a ship.
Very old ship!
Wood pieces are held together with pegs or dowels.
It looks like a side or a hull of a ship.
Nails look hand made with square tops, they are oxidized green so most likely copper or brass.
Ranger station was closed when I left the park and did not get a chance to find out more about this ship debris. Could be a piece of a ship that brought the horses to Assateague in the first place 200 years ago.
Anyway if anyone knows anything about ships or can tell me more about it, date it or anything else, please chime in.
Stay tuned for more shenanigans!
