mysterious fibre balls
it or not, we are still on the topic of seagrass - this time
in South Australia. While visiting relatives at Middleton
(near Victor Harbour), Jane and I took a little time to explore
some local beaches.
at Middleton is a beachcombers' paradise and has some really
special beachcombing treasures.
Middleton treasures are commonly known as fibre balls. These
tightly woven balls of fine, hair-like fibre can be as large
as a cricket ball (although they don't bounce, I am sure that
they are used for beach games).
balls are really common but few people seem to know where
they come from or how they are formed.
