Wrecking ships

The next stop along the journey was Loch Ard Gorge, named after the ship which was wrecked here.

The entrance the gorge is very narrow, it is clear how those who survived the ship wreck managed to find shelter on the shallow beach.

At the far inshore end of the gorge are stalactites sandstone sediment, similar to that I encountered in some of the US national parks based on sandstone.

In the wider surroundings of the gorge are more stunning rock formations which were so tempting and dangerous to those seeking land after their long travels from Europe.
