Finders Keepers

Finders keepers

The ocean with all of its beauty and wonder regurgitates all kinds of interesting items daily. Some of these items it just no longer has a use for like pretty shells and sea creatures that are sick or injured. Some things it didn’t want in the first place like garbage or a pair of sunglasses.

For beachcombers like me every day is like Christmas!

Never knowing what I might find that would be useful in the Trailer Park my eyes are always peeled to spot a curious or precious find. It would be interesting to know the story behind these lost articles if the sea would tell; but, she is a clever mistress.

As I walk along I spy all sorts of things Mother Nature no longer has a use for…like a baby shark! Yikes!

A perfect shell for my collection jar!

Purple bathing suit bottoms. Now there’s a story behind those for sure. I wish I knew it!

A pair of cheap sunglasses. I do believe there is a song about them. Possibly tied to the purple bathing suit bottoms? Imagine somewhere on the Galveston beach there is a woman missing both?! Yikes!

An adorable little cactus koozie.

A bobber.

And a very nice (worth $99.00) Garmin Vivo! The band is broken but easily replaced. Lucky me right?!

Now, to tie all of those items together…A beautiful woman was walking on the beach searching for seashells. She was top less wearing only her cheap black sunglasses, her purple bikini bottoms and her Garmin. She was drinking a Bud Light with lime as she searched for shells at the waters edge she heard a voice calling from the water. Looking out into the deep blue Gulf of Mexico she saw a bobber attached to an unmanned fishing pole stuck in the sand. She heard a voice calling for help and saw the bobber going deep under the water. Diving in without regard for her own life she went deep under the surface where she encountered the infamous Land Shark! He snatched her arm drawing her close. But she was a clever girl and hit him over the head with her beer bottle stunning him and swimming away. In her wake she left behind her glasses, the perfect seashell, her deep purple swimsuit bottoms, the cute koozie, the bobber, and her Garmin with a broken band.

Now as I walk the beach I am uber careful to avoid any unmanned fishing poles stuck at the waters edge. I also ignore any suspicious calls for help that are associated with a bobber going deep below attached to an unmanned fishing pole stuck in the sand. That Land Shark is going to have to do better than that to catch me!

Cautiously yours,
