WA Coast Shipwreck Revealed; Bonhomme Richard Grant Approved

A shipwreck that I remember well as a small child was uncovered by the February 4 windstorm. The wreck of the small cruise ship Catala at the mouth of Grays Harbor on the coast of Washington State near Ocean Shores was rediscovered and photographed from the air by a local television station. I remember scrambling around the wreck in the mid-1960s at the ship's resting place at Dash Point State Park.

And speaking of wrecks, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration has approved a grant to search for the remains of John Paul Jones' Bonhomme Richard off the coast of England. Read the news on the "Do fundo do mar...Sea bottom" blog.
