15 Not an album cover…
This actually emerged on a random beach in Miami back in 2011. The BBC reported on this strange occurrence, and no one has any answers for it. The piano was going to stay there, if it posed no navigational hazards.

14 - Dear John…
Fortunately, these were no Dear John letters, but rather beautiful letters written during WW2. They were tied together with pale pink ribbon, and had washed ashore after Hurricane Sandy. They were discovered by a 14-year old boy and after some searching, they managed to trace the wife, who was 91 years old and sadly in very frail health.

13 - Not a pleasant surprise…
It must have been horrific to discover these sneakers with severed feet inside them, washing up on the shores of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest of the US, since 2007. Roughly 10 shoes have been found, 4 of whom were traced. No foul play is expected, some theorists believe it’s victims from Tsunami’s.

12 - Smooth as Glass…
This particular beach area used to be a landfill right up to 1967. The area was cleaned so many times, but they weren’t able to remove everything. The ocean eventually did a great deal of work for them, and the millions of pieces of broken glass were transformed into smooth glass pebbles.


11 - If The Shoe Fits...
60-thousand Nike sneakers were lost in a storm in 1990. Just like the ducks, scientists have been tracking them for years, learning so much about ocean currents. Apparently after 3 years the sneakers were still in good condition to wear, and people were meeting on the beach to try swop the shoes out to make matching pairs.

10 - Didn’t Follow Instructions…
This giant Lego is a lot like Emmet – he didn’t follow instructions. He is 8-feet tall, 100-pounds and in fact this one is not the only one – there are a few of them. The creation of Ego Leanard, a Dutch painter and sculpture, they all bear the slogan “No Real Than You Are”.

9 - And his journey continues…
This is a strangely beautiful story. Judi Glunz Sidney was doing a bit of a beach clean-up at Key Colony Beach, when she found a plastic bottle with a note, ashes and $2.00 inside. Gordon Smith’s wife said her late husband loved to travel, and decided to see where her husband’s journeys would take him. It was the second time the bottle had been found, and she duly called the wife to say she found it and put it back in the water.


8 - A washout….
A Harley Davidson Motorbike got lost during the Japanese Tsunami, travelled 4000 miles to Canada, still in its original box. The person who found the bike did a noble thing, and traced the owner through the license plate!



7 - A grim discovery…
Two beach goers at Ocean beach in San Francisco, were quite shocked to find a tombstone from 1876 washed up on shore. It belonged to 20-year old Emma Bosworth who passed away in 1876. Even more strangely, a month later – another grave stone washed up on the same beach a month later.





6 - Message in a bottle…
A 10-year old girl on holiday in a little Scottish coastal town, popped a message into a bottle and dropped it into the ocean. 6-months later, the bottle washed ashore on a small island in Norway. With a bit of help, the young Norwegian girl who found the bottle traced Eva back to Scotland and the girls are looking forward to their pen pal relationship.

5 - The oldest yet…
Speaking of messages in bottles, apparently the oldest message in a bottle washed ashore in Germany not too long ago. The bottle had been at sea for around 108 years, and was originally thrown into the North Sea, with a postcard asking the bottle to delivered to the Marine Biological Association in the UK.

4 - Finding Treasure…
It would be a dream come true finding hidden treasure on the beach, and this dog walker was in luck when he came across a more peculiar kind of treasure. He found ambergris, which is basically whale vomit. It’s highly valuable and used to make perfumes. He sold it for almost $17 000.00

3 - Houston, we have a problem…
This is a leftover piece from the SpaceX Falcon crash that found in Elbow Cay in the Bahamas. It was thought the rocket came in to land too hard and too fast, causing it to crash into ocean.

2 - Cold as Ice…
These massive chunks of ice showed up on Cape Cod’s coastline in Massachusetts. They say it’s a once in a lifetime event, and caused by the brutal cold winter and record breaking snow fall that took place in the Arctic in 2015.


1 – Looks are deceiving…
These kids were on holiday and playing with what they believed was a buoy – only to discover it was actually an unexploded bomb from WW2.
