Walking the dogs this evening along the beach about 5 pm i spotted a lot of yellow jackets along the shore, oh, oh I thought, whats a do here, smugglers, a body, a beached whale? so I hurried along, nonchalantly of course, to have a lookee. As I got closer I realized the path was closed off . I asked one of the Coastguard, not too sure he says but what was reported as 'a suspicious object' had been washed up, was it a bomb? I asked open mouthed, considering I and the dogs walk here most days and was along that very spot this morning. We are making closer inspection but we can't allow anyone on the beach for now,. OHHHHH. how exciting.
On the way back, having had to go up the cliff path, I asked one of the Policemen, had they discovered what it was? Well nothing dramatic after all, apparently it was a large gas canister, but as it was still pressurized or something, they had to guard it till it was removed, just in case it blew up. poor beggars, they must have been freezing as there was a cold wind blowing, and it was getting dark. So I left them to it and toddled off home.
A little later as I was wallowing in a nice warm bath I wondered if they were still standing on the beach. I hope not, I'll check, but not till morning.

Not a brilliant photo, but I only had my phone, don't know why it was bluish. That's Ruby watching by the way.
