Message In A Bottle Washes Up 300 Miles Away From Original Spot
Sometimes there are stories out there that just make you feel good. This is one of them.
Everyone has many different stories of putting a letter in a bottle and throwing it out to the sea wondering how far the message will go and if anyone will get it. Let alone respond to it.
An 8-year old Scottish girl decided to send one out to sea and fingers crossed someone would get it and bring a smile to their day. The young girl and her father chose a local beach off the coast of Scotland to launch her bottle back in November of 2017. Almost a year and a half later she received an email from a family in Norway saying they found the bottle washed up on a beach in Feoy, a small Norwegian island 300 miles across the North Sea. Now the two families have become close friends.
I have heard of other stories of families launching letters with balloons in the past but this one just brought a smile to my face and wanted to share a feel-good story. That all of us can sit back and smile at.
