Going Bananas

by | 2nd, September 2003

‘WE are used to finding a whole assortment of things on the beach – sand, seaweed, shells, Dale Winton… But rarely bananas.

So, imagine the surprise of residents of Morskoy, a Russian town on the edge of the Baltic Sea when they awoke to find their beaches covered in the yellow fruit.

However, they immediately took advantage of their seafall, with adults collecting the bananas to take home and children playing with them, spelling out names of Russian cities in giant letters on the beach.

Labels on the bananas said the fruit had come from Ecuador and are believed to have been lost by a cargo ship in a recent storm.’
