Take a close look and you can see his special passenger.

Juan Valdez was spotted walking along the sea shore in deep thought.
Splash the water swirls around the deteriorating ship before crashing against it.
The sea rolls in.

Rusting away but a nice habitat for the birds and seals.

Seagulls resting on old pier foundation.
