Traveling Buoy Park
This buoy, located off London Ave, was originally used as a navigational aid in Port Royal Sound. During a 1970 storm, it broke loose from its mooring and it traveled out to sea. Amazingly, one year and nearly 6,000 miles later, it ended up in Scotland where it was recovered by a British ship and eventually found its way to being returned to Port Royal in 1973. According to a plaque placed at the buoy, it sits today in the Fraternal Order of Police Memorial Park, and its light is kept burning in dedication to all officers who’ve lost their lives in the line of duty.
Located on London Avenue at the intersection of 9th Street.
