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.
