One look over the edge and sure enough the beach was littered with blue bottles - some of the biggest that we have seen.
Not everyone on the beach was upset
As you can see this water bird is having a feast.
I am pleased to say that we managed to get our swim in before the next high tide brought the blue bottles back on shore.
As a P.S. to my original post. When typing the above it never occurred to me that so many had not heard of blue bottles. They are the curse of every beachgoer each summer here in Australia. I have put a link here to check out more about them if you are interested.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
