On my last trip to Adelaide I decided to return to exploring the Port Adelaide region. As I was down that way to see the chiropet with Kayla, I decided to spend some time scoping around Garden Island area. It has been ages since I have been there, and I wanted to return to the ship graveyard that I photographed in the 1980s.
Most of the ships in the graveyard can only be accessed by kayak. I was in luck that day as I was able to access part of the ship graveyard due to the low tide. It was overcast, which is what I'd wanted for the photos.
What had changed? Surprisingly, not that much. The Sunbeam was still there, even if its hull was more decayed. The mangroves were heavily infested with mosquitos so I didn't hang around trying to see if I could access the other ships from the river bank.
