Drift Finds Of The Week!!

Posted on

Sorry about the corny title, but these finds were not thrifted, but found drifting through the beautiful waters near Runaway Bay, Jamaica.  I took photos of many of the things I saw with my GoPro Hero 4 Black mounted on my brand new wrist mount.  I saw amazing things this trip, lots of new fish species and some cool but weird finds.  I will show you the fish first and then the unusual items I found last.  Leaving the best for last of course!!

A cuttlefish which changed colours many times in response to me following it around.

Sea Slug Shell.  This still had a partially eaten slug still inside and I was able to pry the flesh out before washing it.

Horse tooth.  I also found parts of the rest of the skeleton; some ribs, a vertebrae and a tibia or two.  I left the other bones behind because I figured it would take some real explaining to the border guards coming back through customs.

An antique clay pipe bowl.  From what I can find out from researching off the Internet and based on the markings and shape, it is possibly from the 1700s or 1800s.  Pretty cool I think.  I can only imagine who used this pipe and then either lost it or discarded it when the stem broke off.  This is my favourite find for sure.

Hope you enjoy the pictures and the post.  Let me know what you think.  Cheers, Michele
