Souzoukakia, 4 elastoplasts and a condom

Not pleased to report that the other day on Pallas beach after the wind changed direction (coming onshore from main beach) I discovered an object that I first thought was a discarded souzoukakia, but closer inspection revealed that the object was a jobbie !! Floating round about it were 4 elastoplasts and a condom. Yuk !! Couldn't find a fishing net to remove said objects and they continued to head towards Skala.

The water also had a distinctive brown bloom that day - proliferating algae caused by the very high temps and dredged up by the wind ??? I'll give it the benefit of doubt !!

More of a brown flag day rather then a blue one I think

My initial thoughts were that it was bilge pumped out by one of the very many boats in the bay.

Pleased to report though that the very next day all was back to normal and the water was very clear again and free of floaters

Hey

Probably was, I thought maritime laws/rules dictated that waste is dumped (oops) a certain distance out to sea?

As my old nan used to say "keep your mouth closed when sea swimming!"

Though she meant Blackpool, not Lindos.

Glad it's back to normal now.

Can I ask what a jobbie is???? I thought it might be a condom but not if one was floating near!! I am intrigued!!!!

A jobbie is a Scottish word for a poo !! I think you might refer to them as turds in your neck of the woods wirralbuddy
