We are used to hearing stories about people taking inappropriate floaties to the beach. That is, of course, when we could go to the beach!
Usually, most adults love nothing more than to take crocodile shaped buoyancy aids out onto the vastness of the open ocean before needing the coastguard to come and rescue them because they overlooked the fact that their ‘floatie’ has no means of effective control.
But we recently spotted a beach-related story with a difference while we were checking out what’s hot and what’s not on social media. Ok, given the story is from a few months ago, but what the heck; there’s not much going on out there at the moment.
It turned out that a male who had been sunning himself on Miami beach decided to head out on to the water with a ‘companion’ that just happened to be an inflatable doll.
‘Bit of a strange companion to take to the beach’ i hear you say.
As you would expect, the beach (at the time) was full of families and kids so bringing ‘Belinda’ the blow-up doll to the waterfront was never going to be a ‘good’ idea’. Quite a few parents were angry, and rightly so.
the male was pictured floating in the sea with ‘Belinda’
So Belinda and here owner were politely asked to leave the beach to prevent any further upset. You can just imagine how the bloke felt as he walked off the beach with ‘Belinda’ in tow, much to the amusement of his mates.
At least he didn’t just cat her adrift.
Clearly, on this occasion, he should have stuck to inflatable crocodiles.
Apparently, despite it being the Autumn months, we have heard that ‘Belinda’ is still on the beaches of Miami being blown around as she looks for a new companion to join her out on the ocean.
If ever an excuse was needed to head to Miami beach, then this is it!?
