The day started with running errands and stopping by a beach on the south shore.

The wind has been blowing out of the south for a few days, so the rough water on the south side means flat seas on the north. That means that if we hop a few fences

and hike a couple of miles through the mangroves, we can go check out a shipwreck that's washed up near the beach!

We swam out and soon started finding wreckage

but no engines, props, or machinery other than some pumps and winches.
It's just an old barge.

We did manage to find some nice shells, though.

And on the way home we poked around some plantation ruins

and found a few more bits of chaney!

We plan to go search for more tomorrow.
