"Graveyard Shoals" Wreck of the SS Francisco Morazan, South Manitou Island Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

This was an eery scene watching the sunset at this shipwreck ... those BIRDS! like something out of a Hitchcock film. The ship was caught in a late November snowstorm and she was blown into the shoals along South Manitou Island in 1960.
