Revealed at low tide

The keel is all that’s left of the four-masted schooner “Dorothy.” It makes a puzzling figure in the waters of Shackford Cove, regardless of the tide. I had supposed it might have been a section of a rail track used at one of the four shipyards that once lined the shore. On a really low tide, this is how it looks up-close.

 

 

I’m guessing the keel flipped over, yet all of the iron rods are still impressive. The work of blacksmiths, no doubt.

Been in the same position at least as long as the old-timers around here can remember.
