Ship Aground and Martello Tower

This past March, HC Rubina was here in Honolulu (see Adventure at Sea! Excitement! Action!)

I was looking for more information about the ship and found out that she ran aground near Messina (Sicily) in March of last year.

A video on YouTube shows the area and a coast guard boat surveying the scene:

What’s really cool is that at 9:44, there is a nice view of a pre-Napoleonic era Martello tower (Torre Cariddi a Ganzirri).

Wonder what the people in the buildings just yards from the water were thinking?

    I love your eye! The locals are thinking that the captain should drink less when he’s driving. 🙂
