Message in a Bottle

Ever sent a message in a bottle?

Back in the 70s my uncle sent a message in a bottle and you'll never guess how far it traveled.
While aboard a cruise ship with his family, my uncle tossed a message in a bottle over the edge of the ship.

His message was found more than 3,500 miles away in France.

I am floored! I had absolutely no idea until I found this newspaper article at my Grandma's.
This should be family legend.

Other message in a bottle tales:

World's largest message in a bottle.
