The 5 Weirdest Things That Have Washed Up On Florida Shores

They’re not exactly buried treasure, but Florida’s coastlines have seen some pretty strange surprises over the years. Here’s a list of the weirdest finds in recent memory.

 

5. A World War II Flash Bomb

As you might have seen, a four-foot-long bomb covered in barnacles was discovered over the weekend at St. Pete Beach, and the beach was thus evacuated. A small crowd watched from a distance as it was detonated as part of its disposal. Flash bombs were used to illuminate targets for pilots, and the one that washed ashore was probably part of a training mission.

What do you think about these strange discoveries? Do you remember any others we might have missed? Let us know in the comments below.
