Massachusetts College Student Receives Reply To Message In A Bottle Thrown Into The Ocean
The American student received a response to a letter that he sealed in a bottle and threw into the Atlantic Ocean when he was nine years old, according to CBS Boston.
Max Vredenburgh wrote the letter in August 2010 and sent it sailing across the ocean on a beach in Rockport, Massachusetts.
“I like apples, I like the beach, my favorite color is blue. I like animals, I like cars, and I like space,” he wrote in the lette. The boy left his address and asked a potential recipient to respond.
As it turns out, the current carried the bottle with the letter to the Atlantic coast of France, where on October 10 it was found between Contis and Mimizan.
“It will have taken 9 years to cover the 600kms that separates us. You had grown a lot during that time: 10 to 19 years old,” wrote a Frenchman who signed the bottle and signed G. Dubois in a response message.
The young man admits that he completely forgot that he sent this letter in a bottle.
