What Once Was…

Throwback Thursday

The SS Atlantus was built in 1918 and served 2 years transporting troops after Wold War I from Europe back to the states and coal to Europe.  After only 2 years of service she was retired to a salvage yard located Virginia in 1920.  SS Atlantus came out of retirement in 1926 and brought to NJ to create a new ferry service in Cape May NJ (her legacy continues with the Cape May Lewes Ferry).

Unfortunately a storm hit and the ship ran aground about 150 feet from shore and after many attempts to free her they were not able to free the SS Atlantus.  She was damaged and sunk.

The picture below is all that remains.

One of the interesting facts is that the SS Atlantus is made of concrete.  How does a concrete ship float?

Cape May – Lewes Ferry

Today I took an impromptu drive to Cape May New Jersey to take a few pics at the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.  A lot of people take the 45 minute Ferry ride to venture into Lewes Delaware.

I learned today that part of Cape May is an island.  I have lived in this state for almost 48 years and never knew that it was an island.

An Island??

An Island??

From my home to the Ferry it takes approximately 1.5 hours to get there but the drive is worth it.  It provided me peaceful time to think about the week to come and the next photo excursion.  I think Philadelphia Wednesday.
