21-Year-Old Message In a Bottle

by - 5:59 AM

Have you heard the news about the 21-Year-Old Message In a Bottle? I just find it awesome. I know a lot of people have tried to do stuff like this, myself included and some of my friends when we were younger, but I haven't heard of one coming back, especially this long. Amazing! The bottle carrying the message of Emily Hwaung, then an elementary school student in a suburb of Seattle, drifts 1,735 miles. The message inside a soda bottle was , "This letter is part of our science project to study oceans and learn about people in distant lands," she wrote. "Please send the date and location of the bottle with your address. I will send you my picture and tell you when and where the bottle was placed in the ocean. Your friend, Emily Hwaung."

Merle Brandell, a 34-year old, bear hunting guide and manager of a local water plant, found the bottle while he was beachcombing along the shore of his tiny Alaskan fishing village. He tried to track down the sender, called the school and sent a handwritten letter.
