Three Sisters

Moosabee, Deltona, and an unidentified vessel make up a location that is often referred to as “The Three Sisters.” These sites are located close to the shore, up against the bluff, and are furthest away from the open water. Each vessel contains substantial vegetation, covering most of the open surface of the vessels. The unidentified vessel has also been home to a blue heron, demonstrating that while these vessels are no longer useful as cargo ships, they have now become an important part of the local ecology. These vessels now provide sanctuary to birds and other animals, as well as different vegetation, allowing for nature to be on true display.
