September,5, 1909, in Conception Bay, during a foggy day.
Today, it lies in the sand at a distance of nearly 400 meters from the shoreline. The beach is increasing due to the sand transported by the wind coming usually from the desert.
The coast is named as “Skeleton coast” for the bleached whale and seal bones witch covered the shore when the whaling industry was still active.
Nowadays, more than a thousand vessels of various sizes and areas litter the coast.
