Coconut Surprise

Having mentioned the coconut I found washed up at Kenfig two or three years ago, I hope you don't mind me posting some photos of it here. Before setting sail for these shores it seems to have spent some time on the ground, where it got bored into by creatures unknown and the husk may have started decaying.

Note the small holes. 

Viewed from the base, through a hole in the husk can be seen the
nut, with a Serpulid worm tube.

The nut seen through the three holes at the top of the husk.

I believe all the above features qualify this as a true ocean traveller.
