Day 118:

This is a photo of the SS Kyle in the bay of Harbor Grace. In the 1960s it had a run-in with an iceberg that caused it to be brought into the harbor for repairs. But then a big storm hit, the moorings broke, and the ship drifted into shallower water where the bottom got torn out. It was too big and heavy to move to so they just stripped everything out of it and it has been sitting there ever since. Consider it the nautical equivalent of a rusting Camero in your neighbors yard. Somewhat more scenic though.
