I have posted several times about various flotsam and jetsam that we have picked up on the beach. This recent news item, however, will cause me to be even more watchful of what floats in.

Hashish bricks wash up in Peloponnese
Port Authority officers confiscated 77 packages, 1 kilo of hashish each,

that washed ashore in the Kalo Nero beach in western Messinia,
Peloponnese, southern Greece.
The authority was notified by local people who found the first 6
packages. They were all damaged from being in the water for
several days. An investigation is underway to determine their source.


Update: About a week later they found a satchel on Crete with several more bricks in it.
I am guessing Greek island beachcombing has really picked up.
