Arriving back on the west coast this afternoon I headed straight for a beach on Loch Broom, to see if I could spot one of the oranges I had launched back in October . I quickly began to understand how the oranges may well not be found as the on set of wild weather and high tides in the last four weeks had driven massive mounds of seaweed up onto the beach, which could quite easily contain many of the oranges which might never be found. Thankfully if the oranges are in there they will rot down.
My dog Cal is a great companion to have around while surveying the beach litter and today she joined me on Rhue Beach in my twilight hunt for oranges, no oranges were found but she decided to sit down close to what looks to be one of the strange stones recently reported to me this week. The orange coloured cobble stone is now tagged with its co-ordinates and will to be taken to the A.T.S* temporary laboratory for analysis later this week .
