I dont even know if anyone could answer this, but I am as curious as they come. I totally forgot to ask this last winter. 2 summers ago at one of my beach volleyball tournaments, i found a bunch of stove coal on the beach. I had enough to fill a 5 gallon bucket. (I had all my vball player friends putting it aside for me if they found any throughout the day) (Yes, they all thought i was crazy
) Of course I burnt it the following winter, and it burned pretty damn good. My question is Why the hell was it there? It wasn't all in the same place, it was scattered sporadically all over the beach. Was there a shipwreck carrying coal that i never read about? Maybe someone here has an explanation. Any clue?
