Spring must be here. I was wading in Lake Michigan this morning! I had been told about a shipwreck that had washed up on the shore near Port Oneida, so I went out to see for myself. Sure enough, there were actually two of them close enough to shore that you can see them from the dry sand. But to get a good picture, I needed to wade in to my knees. It didn't take long for my legs to go completely numb.
This one is about 100 yards north of the Lane Road stairway and is very close to the historic site of the Port Oneida dock. One of the old dock pilings is just feet away and the wreck is close to the shore.
Walk back to the stairs and then keep walking south another 100 yards or so and look into Lake Michigan. This one is about 20 yards off shore but you can still see it from the beach.
