Canadian Boy’s Message in a Bottle Found
“I found the bottle on the 24th of September,” she wrote me, “on one of the beaches (I think it is called Second beach) of Stanley Peninsula in Vancouver, BC. I was so excited I forgot to take a picture of the bottle on the actual beach!”
What did the Candian boy’s message in a bottle say?
Oh yeah! How do we know it’s a Canadian boy’s message in a bottle? Well, here’s what Ines found in the bottle:
Hi! My name is Andrew Smith. I wish to become an author for writing fiction. I live in a city called Richmond, B.C. close to Steveston. If you want to believe in your true inner strengths rather than weaknesses, th[e]n go ahead and do it.
This second page contains a great drawing of a pirate ship (Ahoy, Matee!) sailing on a sunny ocean! It reminds me of a mysterious drawing recently found in a bottle on Devon’s north coast which I posted about (click here for that story).
I wish I could be as free as the ocean. Whoever gets this, I hope you know to be yourself. Your perfect and stay strong because your not alone. I’m sending this from Vancouver, BC. Believe that anything is possible if you just try. This will sail across the ocean to whoever you are who gets this and I hope to help and inspire you.
By golly, this is just about the sweetest and most uplifting message in a bottle I’ve heard of in a long time. It may not have traveled all that far, but as I always say, the magic of messages in bottles has little to do with time or distance–it’s about the connection, the friendship made possible.
Now, Ines hopes to connect with Andrew. I didn’t find any good candidates in a bit of searching, so I’m hoping you guys can help them connect!
