The Concrete Ship, Palo Alto (an aerial perspective)

Aerial view of the deteriorating concrete ship located at Seacliff State Beach, Aptos, California. The ship is starting to break up and vanish in certain areas. Only the birds and underwater creatures can see her true beauty now. Many years ago this was a party boat. It even had a swimming pool and a bar aboard. Back in the days after the war that the boat was manufactured for was a pretty good time for this ship. It was originally made for World War II which was over by the time it was completed.
