Everytime i visit the Elliots beach, Besant Nagar, am drawn to the Karl Schmidt Memorial that stands alone near the ocean… The memorial seems to tell a different story at different times of the day… Curiosity got the better of me and i started digging, asking people on what this memorial was….
Discovered that the Schmidt Memorial at Elliots Beach is a memorial for Karl Schmidt, a Dutch Sailor who lost his life while rescuing a drowning swimmer….
Beautiful and majestic
Alone and forlorn
The memorial stands strong….
A shelter for many
A hideout for some
Perfect spot to watch the sunrise
Get a glimpse of the sunset
From across miles,
The memorial catches my eye…
Check out this beautiful shot of the Schmidt memorial on wiki….
