Unless you send one out because you are in trouble, sending a message in a bottle always seemed really cool to me. Just the thought of having a message that at some point someone else will pick up on. This little 9-year-old kid agrees!
The people at Yahoo agree with me on how intriguing messages in a bottle are. A year ago, little Thomas Craig put a message in a bottle, expecting it to never go anywhere. Just a few weeks ago, Trinity Ballesteros of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii found the message in a bottle and wrote to Thomas, even though he thought it would never happen.
“I couldn’t believe someone had found it. I was shocked. When I threw it overboard, it hit the top of my grandpa’s boat so I thought it broke and sank. The chances of someone finding it seemed like a once-in-a-million type thing.”
One of the most impressive cases of a message in a bottle finding its way to a shoreline is when a bottle found its way 2,000 miles away from original start. But the most impressive part is, it took 50 years!
