On the second day of the Hari Raya weekend and a sunny afternoon, the swimming pool is closed and best alternative to water fun is the beach. Again, the kids and I headed to the Billionth Barrel Monument landmark where these images were shot.

Ostensibly, the phrase message in a bottle originated from a castaway on an island who sent out a message in a bottle to seek help. Truth or myth, who knows—Google produced infinite pages of results ranging from songs to books to films with this title. A lone green empty bottle without a label on the beach leaves plenty of messages to the imagination although I am least bit familiar with this shape and size. It’s certainly too big for perfume, a little wrong for alcohol, inconveniently heavy for mouth wash. If anything, I’m getting mixed messages!

Meanwhile the kids, Jamie and Jewel, are having fun in and out of the water. Forgetting to bring their spade and hoe, they resorted to what came naturally.

Beaches are often washed up with all sorts of interesting items including this dead Sting Ray among other ocean bound creatures that had become inanimate objects left to fossilise.
