Just things

An odd thing happened on the beach today.

I drove down onto the Spit and was looking for debris to clean up. A couple approach me and the lady says “There is a hand grenade farther down. I marked it with a stick.”.

I went to see it and to keep people away and sure as hell, there was one. It was hard to tell if it was real or fake but you have to err on the side of safety. I called the Wildlife Officer and he came down a looked at it.

Turned out it was just a plastic hand grenade firework that had washed up on the beach. They have found ordnance before so this was unusual, but not unheard of. If it were real then we have to call in people to dispose of it.
