Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 28, 2020

Not long after the Caroline Eddy set sail in 1880 from Florida with cargo bound for up the coast, a powerful hurricane nearly tore it apart, casting the crew, clinging to the rigging, adrift for two days before the wreck washed ashore. Over 140 years later, a couple walking along Crescent Beach this month noticed some wooden timbers and bolts sticking out of the sand in parallel formation after another tropical storm, Eta, battered the beach with high waves and powerful winds. Maritime archaeologists believe it may be the bones of the Caroline Eddy, preserved for over a century by a blanket of sand.

This is a beach I walk a few times most months... never saw these timbers, though.

A little ways south we have New Smyrna Beach, which I read the other day is the Shark Attack Capitol of... wait for it... the World.

Everything is old and wrecked in Florida. It's America's sewer.

Nah, we just blame him for his horrible policy and seditious behavior, for being a generally terrible person inspiring others to be terrible as well
