Shipwreck Isle

Before Magellan, there was a man named Bernadez who, heartbroken from the death of his young bride, set sail from Equatorial Guinea towards Tierra del Fuego on a suicide mission to drop off the face of his flat earth.

Holding her rosary in his palm, he looked ahead at the mountainous glacier before him—a white light that would reunite him with his love in Heaven…


“You’re telling me this island’s really a ship?” Reenie interrupted.

“When it hit the glacier, the ship flipped over, and the anchor chain wrapped around the hull,” Jacob continued. “Nature took over from there.”

  1. It would not surprise me if there is an island like this somewhere. Never underestimate nature. Creative take on the prompt.
