Many families when they go to a beach dig a hole. Then at the end of the day it gets filled back in.
My son gave me the idea of putting a message in a bottle in the hole before it's filled in. We've been doing this for the past couple of years.
We've usually been digging down to the water line with the expectation that only a few of these will be found in our lifetime.
We leave our contact details and some background info about what we're doing and where we buried it in case a storm/tide relocates it.
I was wondering whether other Boardsies were interested in doing this, to start a thread where people post on which beach they've just buried a time capsule and if anyone later finds one of these, they could also post the discovery on the thread.
If people want to post co-ords for their bottles to make those bottles easier to find, they can.
People could replace the found bottle if they liked, as per geocaching, but if it's been there a good few years, I'd have no problem with someone keeping it above ground. For the record, we've buried on the following beaches:
Dogs Beach, Galway
Salthill , Galway
Carne Beach, Wexford
La Tranche Sur Mer
Portiragnes, Cap D'Agde (just past the camper van with the Wexford Flag in Les Sablons)
Every beach in Sithonia
