The wreck of the Cherry Venture

This photo was taken by my sister.

 

In about 1974, when we went to Queensland to visit the Grandparents, this ship had already run aground on Rainbow beach during a storm earler in the year. Back then, it was a new ship, but they were unable to refloat it. I distinctly rememeber the ship being white and blue.

 

This photo is taken about 10 years later. It had become this rusting hulk.
