Formentera's Flotsam

Today was a lovely, sunny, calm day so I went for a long walk along the beach at Platja de ses Illetes. I only passed a few people and as it was getting pretty hot I decided to go in for a swim. The water seemed tropical after swimming in Finland's frozen lakes earlier this month, but I soon began to lose feeling in my legs and decided to get out.

I dried off in the sun then continued my walk, and a bit further on I found the most interesting thing I've come across beachcombing so far - part of an aircraft's tailfin with 'Banshee' printed on it washed up on the beach. There didn't seem to be any dead bodies lying around it so I carried it to the end of the beach near Espalmador where there's a collection of cairns and sculptures made from flotsam, which I've been meaning to add to, and feeling creative, made it into a sculpture of my own.


Ok, I obviously need a picture of that please!
