Message in a bottle

3 Jan

Back in 2014 or so, on one of our gulf stream crossings, Madi decided to write a message and put it in a bottle to see where it ended up. Today, she finally heard back! She got an email stating that yesterday the bottle and a young man named Emanuel found each other in Pico Island, Azores!

If that bottle could talk about the nearly four year journey it had, riding the gulf stream. We speculate that it rode the current north towards Iceland, before it curved back around south to land on the Azores.

What a wonderful way to start 2018, as we prepare to move back on Tango in the spring and continue getting her ready for future cruising adventures.

Thank you, Emanuel!

      So sorry to hear that Mitzy died. She was a cool kitty!

        Thanks, she was an awesome cat. Always made me laugh at her crazy antics. 🙂

    What an amazing story. Greetings and Happy New Year from S/V Pearl. You have come to mind lately. We came into Loggerhead Marina in Vero to avoid hurricane Irma. We have been here too long now and will be heading out in a few weeks.

    Thanks for sharing this!
