Visiting the Wreck of the Sacramento

At our request, we had asked Craig to take a day to drive us around some of the local sights. We found ourselves on the beach at the Wreck of the Sacramento.

The Sacramento was the pride of the Portuguese fighting fleet in the 17th Century. She ran aground just off Schoenmakerskop outside Port Elizabeth on 30 June 1647 in foul weather. By the time she hit the rocky coastline, she had a badly damaged rudder and her sails were in tatters.
