|A Few Additional Surface Finds From Yesterday|
The Milkette bottle that I showed yesterday is an example of what you can find surface hunting after a storm or even a big rain, which is the case this time.
Remember not all erosion is on the beach, and even a good rain can uncover things.
I've done a little research on the Milkette bottle now and found out a few things. On the bottom is the number 65 which I took to be the year the bottle was manufactured. That seems like it might be right.
I found a web site that showed a bottle very much like it and the picture was labeled as follows.
1964 Yoo-Hoo Coconut Milk Test Market.
Coconut milk! Who would have guessed.
There was only one blue Milkette bottle shown. I would guess it is somewhat rare.
Here is the link.
Anybody remember this? Would like to hear from you if you do.
I haven't managed to find any information on the straight-side Fort Pierce 7 ounce Coca Cola Bottling Co. bottle yet.
Indian River Drive between Midway Road and Walton Road remain closed due to a washout that happened last Thursday during the pouring rains.
Here is a video from Channel 12 News showing the washout.
That is a 13 mile stretch or road that remains closed.
On the beaches don't expect anything more than two or three foot surf for a few days.
There is nothing in the forecast to suggest any improvement in beach detecting conditions for a while.
There is still a lot of time left for winter weather. January and February can be good months. Hopefully we'll get something like November again before winter is over.
I might just take another walk of two and do a little mucking around.
