As They Walked Along the Beach, This Couple Never Expected to Discover A Cryptic Message

Most people go to the beach to soak up the sun, read a good book, hit the waves, and simply enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. For others though, the beach is seen as a treasure trove just waiting to be discovered. If you have a metal detector you can comb the beach for hours, waiting to hear the beep-beep, of something ready to be unearthed. Sometimes you will find something, but more often than not you will come up empty-handed. For one family who was out for a stroll, they would pick up something astonishing.

Meet Tonya And Kym

For these two Australian photographers, they never expected to happen upon anything of interest on a beach in Western Australia. They would spend most of their time flying to far-flung places in the world to capture beautiful shots of nature and animals.

When they decided to go out for a simple walk in their home province though, they would find something worth a second look. What appeared to be something quite old, would contain a story that they had to uncover.

Getting Stuck

Driving out to beaches in Australia is pretty normal. You have a vehicle with 4-wheel drive for those tough to reach places, and in this case, sandy situations. Kym and Tonya knew they wanted to get some shooting done, which meant driving over some very sandy patches of their favorite local spot.

They never expected that the sand would sink under the wheels of their vehicles and get stuck. Once they realized there would be no moving, and that they would need someone to come and help them they decided to go for a walk along the shoreline. It was there that they would make a discovery.

Keeping The Beach Clean

This particular stretch of beach saw a lot of traffic, and as the couple walked along they noticed that there was a lot of litter scattered around. They knew they were in for a bit of a wait with their vehicle, so they decided to make the most of their time and collect all of the litter in the area.

As Tonya went about picking up trash, she saw the light hit something very near to her hand. She got a bit closer to the source of the shine, and low and behold, it appeared to be a very old glass bottle.
