Scenes from the Skeens

The SS Dicky

About a hundred years ago a small ship was beached along the coast here. They tried to remove it but a sandbar had built up around it making it difficult, so they gave up and left it. When it came time to name the beach they called it Dicky beach after the SS Dicky, an inadvertent landmark that gets more corroded and buried each year. Despite the inauspicious beginnings, it’s a nice feature that breaks up the monotony of a seemingly endless string of sand and surf.
