Message in a Bottle Travels 2,300 Miles

A message in a bottle that was launched this past December off the coast of a Caribbean island has been found by a beachcomber in Texas. The AP reports that Massachusetts couple George and June Smith had thrown the bottle off their boat into the waters near the island of Martinique. On Friday, James Howie Hill of Carthage, Texas, discovered the algae-covered green bottle near High Island, nearly 2,400 miles away. Inside, the Smiths' note read, "We are off the coast of Martinique heading to Fort de France. We left St. Martin last week. If you happen across this bottle, may you have good fortune and let us know." Per the Smiths' request, Hill emailed them that the bottle had been found--and they've already replied. "They couldn't believe it was found," says Hill. "In all their 30 years of sailing they have only thrown about 15 messages overboard. Before this two were found."
