If you’ve lived in the Bay Area long enough, you’ve probably seen someone on Instagram.
As I approach the weathered, tilted ship that ran aground in Tomales Bay on a sunny Saturday afternoon, a mix of about 15 people move around, circling and inspecting the abandoned boat. Some peek inside its exposed entrails, a rusty engine encased in cobwebs visible under fallen wood and twisted wires. Others take photos in front of the attraction, doing their best to capture themselves, the boat and the bay behind, which is no easy task. A few brave people board what remains of the collapsed and scorched stern.
