I Found a Charleston Student’s Message in a Bottle from a Science Project

Messages in bottles have been used by scientists since the mid 19th century to study ocean currents. Indeed, the oldest messages in bottles ever found have been from science experiments. It’s no wonder that they are still used to study ocean currents. I had never found a message in a bottle from a science project in a bottle until I stumbled upon this one. It appears to be a student’s message in a bottle from a larger project.

Messy Message in a Bottle Found on a Rocky Shore

Once upon a time, waaay back in 2013, I was limping along a Caribbean shore with a hurt foot, when I stumbled upon this bottle that looked about as bedraggled as my foot felt. Just before this journey, I had tripped off of the curb in front of my house in a  lively flail, causing something in my foot to snap loudly enough to turn the heads of passersby. After that, the foot mostly hung limp at the end of my leg as I dragged it along behind me, and I made very distinctive tracks in the sand… So I was grateful for a break from walking to examine this apparently hopeless message in a bottle. Inside the bottle was not a “message,” exactly, but a discouraging wad of paper with some letters visible here and there.

Corinthians Message in a Bottle Found on Padre Island

Beachcomber extraordinaire husband and wife team Mike and Sandy were combing the shores of Padre Island in Texas in early April when Mike stumbled upon a wee bit of treasure – A message in a bottle! Once he opened the message he found it contained a verse from the Bible, as well as a pair of names that were a bit hard to read. Since no last names were offered, he’s hoping to share the message here and hopefully connect with the authors of this Corinthians message in a bottle, who seem to be named Mike and Britt…

Mike Seeks Authors of Bottled Note

“I found [a message in a bottle] 4-5-19 on Padre Island National Seashore that I could use some help with,” Mike wrote in an email to me. “It was written on a notepad from a resort in Saint Lucia and the writing was faded but I figured out the message to be a bible verse…1 Corinthians 13:13. BUT, the two first names I haven’t figured out yet. Could be Mike and Britt??? Might be a couple on a weddingtrip/honey moon? Dated 7-2018. I would love to figure out who the senders are and their story.”

Message in a Bottle Disguised as Trash

A couple weeks ago, my dad and I were on a little adventure in a far-flung corner of the Caribbean, hoping we might find a message in a bottle or some other beach treasure among all the trash.

Me and my dad with some of our message in a bottle finds.

We were walking down the beach about 20 or 30 feet apart, when he called out to me.

“I’ve got something I want you to check out, Clint!” He shouted over the wind and crashing waves. “It’s probably trash but I want to get your eyes on it. It’s just some kind of wrapper.” Continue reading

Message in a Bottle in Utah Lake

Folks, I live in Salt Lake City, and that’s very close to a lake called Utah Lake. It is a big lake, and I have always wondered whether anyone has ever sent a message in a bottle in Utah Lake? After all, messages in bottles can float around in landlocked lakes for ages before someone finds them! Like this message in a bottle from Belton Lake in Texas, which is probably 14 – 25 years old, and this 42 year old message in a bottle found in Lake Marion, South Carolina, and this one that floated in Grand Lake, OK for 23 years before being found.

Well, my question has been answered! A duck hunter named Travis has found a message in a bottle in Utah Lake that was written by two kids, Armani and Kayden. They did not give contact information or even date the letter, according to FOX 13 News In fact, we’re not even sure that they sent the message in a bottle IN Utah Lake. Instead, they may have sent it in one of the rivers that feeds Utah Lake.

The Best Messages in Bottles of 2018

1. The World’s Oldest Message in a Bottle (so far…)

Beyond any doubt, one of the best messages in bottles of 2018 is the oldest message in a bottle ever found (so far), clocking in at 132 years old. That…that is seriously old. Even by message in a bottle standards! Previously, the oldest message in a bottle ever found was 108 years old when found (preceded by bottles that were 107, 101, 98, 97 years old, and so on). This one shattered the records–for now. Every time one of these bottles has been found, people have said, “Surely there can’t be any older bottle than that!” but time after time, older bottles show up. But really, you have to wonder, will anyone ever break this record?
