Lady Cotlin and Cormorants

Sunk ship "Lady Cotlin" lies here since early 1950s. Most popular version says that team was deadly drunk and missed Daugava river entrance for around 1km. Other versions - storm, intentionally sunk to get insurance.

 

Interesting fact, that ship is made from concrete. Nowadays it`s located just 200m from the Vecaki beach and moving slowly closer.

 

Shipwreck is loved by Great Cormorants (Phalacrocorax carbo), you can always find them resting here.

 

I have already took photo of this sightseeing 4 years ago, in august 2014.
