Be Amazed at these mysterious, strange and weird beach discoveries! A giant eyeball – Get ready to cover your eyes. Or to cover the eye on the screen. Someone strolling along a Florida beach in 2005 came in for quite the surprise when he looked down and saw something staring back at him. Doritos – So you’ve heard of a beached whale. But I bet you’ve never heard of a beached snack. Our seas are full of way more things that just fish. World War 2 love letters – Some people’s true love may be potato chips, but number 7 is the story of a much greater love than that. LOTS of cocaine – OK, so picture this. You’re walking along a beach, minding your own business, and then you spot a pile of bags in the distance. LOTS of snowballs – Now, I come from England, so I’m pretty used to going to the seaside and being a bit disappointed by the weather when I get there. Severed feet – If the giant swordfish eye scared you, definitely, look away now. Every now and again, something truly horrifying washes up on the coast on British Colombia in Canada and Wahsington in the US. Severed human feet. Still in their shoes. Yes, really.
The St Augustine monster – MONSTER! OLD MONSTER! This ginormous body washed up on a beach in Florida way back in 1896. Two young boys found it and thought it was a whale. But, the experts disagreed. As the investigation rolled on, the story really hit the headlines, with everyone desperate to find out what this deep-sea monster could have been. The scientists struggled, as it was so decayed. It was basically what I’d call a USO, an unidentifiable swimming object.They did think that the creature had tentacles. So, the scientists concluded that it was the remains of a giant.. a very giant.. octopus. It was never certain though and conspiracy theories of aliens were rife in American for over a century. DNA analysis in 2004 finally reached a conclusive solution. It was a whale! The boys were right in the first place. Take that scientists! Glass – Well, I thought you deserved a break from the gruesome ones. Here’s a pretty one for you. In Fort Braggs in California, there’s a glass beach. For the first half of the twentieth century, nearby beaches were used as a dumping ground for old glass and other big household items. Over time, large amounts of glass has washed up on beaches here. Sounds pretty dangerous, right? But,, it isn’t. The ocean has worked its magic and smoothed the glass down. It’s full of beautiful colourful glass pebbles. Lovely. Lego – Another cargo ship issue led to hundreds of pieces of Lego being washed up on the beaches in Devon and Cornwall on the South coast of England. But, that doesn’t even come close to the weirdest Lego find ever. Look at this giant Lego figure. This guy is eight feet tall and has been found in various places all of the world, from the US, to the UK, to the Netherlands to Japan.
