Peter Iredale

Most of us who live in Oregon  know the story of the Peter Iredale. It sailed from Liverpool and ran aground off the Oregon coast in 1906. Over the decades it has slowly been rusting into the ocean, but it is still a tourist attraction.

My husband found and bought three carriages of old slides while rummaging around an antique store in McMinnville. Two slides were of the Peter Iredale, one from 1906 soon after it was beached and the other from 1967.

I love living in the Pacific Northwest being close to the mountains and the ocean. My hobbies include photography, travel, reading, biking, walking and gardening. I am an Anglophile at heart and try to visit the UK often. My camera goes everywhere with me.
