Local buoy goes back to the old country

A scientist living on the Waterford Coast of Ireland sent the Machias Valley News this picture of a buoy he recently found washed up on an Irish beach and belonging to Dave Fraser of Harrington. “I do my best to return flotsam to its owner, but this one is a little awkward to return because the Gulf Stream is relentlessly one way,” wrote Andrew Lloyd, who published the Maine buoy find on his blog. “Perhaps you could tell Dave, though, so he isn’t fruitlessly scouring the waves for his buoy.”
