This is one of three “boiler” tanks down in Cannery bay. There was a fish cannery located in this spot.It’s located where Kennedy lake drains into the ocean. They are very large & heavy pieces of equipment! I can only assume the company wanted to save money?
This site canned fish & requiring large boilers. In a few hundred years these boilers will have been consumed & all the iron will have gone back into the surrounding soils.
Everything eventually breaks down.It’s a matter of time.
It was kind of lonely actually when I realized I was the only one there! I miss their loud barking & growling already,but never the smell!
Whenever you hear me talking about Cannery bay,this is not where I am talking about!
However If you were to look at a chart or map,you would see that this area is technically called “Cannery Bay”. The actual spot where the Cannery was located is behind me.I shot this looking north from a thin point of land.(100 meters) The actual Cannery was directly behind me on the other side of this point of land!
Kind of confusing actually!
When the Cannery was open,this spot was at the rear of the operations where they use to bring their boats up onto the weighs for repair. If you look to the right,you can see the timbers impressions under the grass.
The timbers rested the boats keel while repairs were done to the hulls/motor etc.
This is one of the old boilers at Cannery bay. I noticed the moss & liked the contrast against the rusting metal!
The moss was acting like the rust! A bit of a reversal.
I went into Cannery Bay to see if there were any Sea Lions about and turns out that there wasn’t!
This is the first I have seen this spot since the Spring. I noticed that things have grown back very nicely! Amazing how Nature can do that!
I included a shot from the Spring when this area looked alittle more down trodden!
This is the boiler that the Cannery use to use many years ago! I really do not know very much about the Cannery that was here or exactly when it was here?
I will have to ask a few of the old timers exactly when all of this was happening?UPDATE: Both of these go together as one. They were separated for some reason?
