Although the stranded tanker in the background is more famous, here's this anchor handling vessel clearly aground at the beach at Umm Al Quwain. I don't have any info on what's happened here...

Memories is one of man best asset, that is why Dementia is such a tragic situation, it completely destroy such memories. It is tragic to watch loved ones becoming a nonentity, even forgetting how to eat, how to swallow food and drink.
May no one has to pass through this terrible malady.
best regards my friend
Keep safe

Yes, Emmanuel, memories - and mostly good ones. Even the position that this vessel is in reminds me that not everything is lost... :)
