Behind the Inverness General Store, 12784 Sir Francis Drake Blvd., Inverness, California
This is why we can't have nice things: this shipwreck stood in Point Reyes for as long as anybody could remember, to the delight of artists and photographers. But on the morning of February 22, 2016, someone looking for a good Instagram picture lit some sparklers at the rear of the boat. Some of the sparks landed on the stern, and the ship was heavily damaged by fire, a situation that reminded me of the unfortunate occurrence at Delicate Arch some years back. A lovely photographic subject, nearly ruined by carelessness.
