It’s Shipwreck ⚓️ Sunday, so grab your coffee ☕️ and check out the story of the Moonbeam!

On January 9, 1896, the schooner the Moonbeam, departed Philadelphia, PA for its homeport of Boston, MA under tow with a cargo of coal. The Moonbeam became stranded 2 1/2 miles NE of Spermaceti Cove. The keeper of the Spermaceti Cove station boarded a surfboat and provided some advice to the captain. At high tide, the Moonbeam was refloated and no injuries were reported.
