All memorials work best when easily accessible. Moving this to a location that is closer to parking and not down a long jetty-walkway that's sometimes soaking in water with waves crashing, is the best idea.

Don’t understand your post. That’s exactly where this was moved, to the end of a long walk, far from parking, where one often has to dodge small showers of seawater en route.

As a cruise ship passenger visiting my hometown twice since the Conception disaster I can tell you that virtually all of them that we met were interested in what had happened and very respectful of the memorial. There comes a time, though, when flowers die, pictures, fade, etc. The memory of these folks, including families, will be fresh for a long time to come.

or they moved it because the material that people leave was encroaching on the sidewalk. at the end here, no one has to walk AROUND stuff. that could cause a trip hazard. in the end, its not being "hidden" its being places in an area where it can stay for a longer term..... which is the complete opposite of "hidding" it. people and there conspiracies

If people are posting/placing things there, I hope all the items are biodegradable and not plastic or mylar, etc. It gets windy out there. No reason to put things out made of plastic or other junk that might end up in the ocean.

Wonder if they moved the memorial so cruise ship tourists are less likely to see the memorial and ask questions.

Many tourist will walk out daily to the end of the break water and “see the memorial”. I highly doubt they are trying to hide this.

I think they relocated it to be close to the permanent memorial at the end of the breakwater dedicated to those who have been lost at sea.
