As a kid, anytime I went to the ocean, I would search in the water, deep in the sand, hoping to find a bottle with a letter in it from a faraway place. Unfortunately, I was never lucky enough to discover such a treasure but I never stopped looking. Some may think there is no such thing as a message in a bottle, just stories found in books. Nonetheless, there are plenty of people of all ages throwing their messages into the water hoping someone, somewhere will read their letters. Here is a collection of lucky people who received these special messages.
