During our monsoonal season rain and high tides seeds, leaves, nuts, driftwood and all sorts of interesting objects wash onto our beaches.

On a particular afternoon I visited our local beach near Cullen Point and noticed that in the sand rills created by the tide, seeds of a certain variety of mangrove were gathered. A few sand rills down were a different variety of mangrove seeds we call 'garmbu'. After studying the beach for a while I realised that the weight of the object depended on where it deposited itself on the beach or got caught by the tide.
