one of those things


this old shipwreck is right under the cliffs in Hunstanton. Now, I've been to Hunstanton many times, and I never, ever seen it till this thursday, when we went there with my friend and turned the OTHER way when we came down to the beach, Amazing, really, It was always there and I always went in a different direction
