The beach

I was walking along the beach with the puppy and my parents, which was a nice way to spend a sunday morning, i notice this safe in the mud. In Southend you get lots of things washed up along the beach, seaweed, clothes, glass bottles, but mainly rubbish, but that's normally nearer the town centre where all the tourists head, well the little tourists we get this time of year.

Now when i saw this safe i wondered whether it would have an interesting story like the one on Titanic or it is just an everyday safe which fell off a boat. But then who has a boat these days that needs a safe? It's not like everyone can afford to have a boat and go down river for a day trip in the sunshine and spend the day watching for seals and even the odd dolphin as the go up and down the river like something from a Victorian novel.
