There’s A Shipwreck Ruin From World War I In The Middle Of The Galveston Bay In Texas
Shipwrecks aren’t just the stuff of movies – in fact, there’s one right here in Texas that you can see with your own two eyes. The SS Selma, a concrete ship built during WWI, is located just north of Pelican Island in Galveston Bay. Slowly succumbing to the elements, the ruins of the historic vessel are absolutely awe-inspiring to behold.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
