In September 2018, Hurricane Irma ripped through Florida, displacing families and destroying thousands of homes. Later that month, a couple from Key Largo was walking through the park and observing the damage of the storm. To their surprise, they saw a message in a bottle.
While cleaning up the area around a fence, Ruth and Lee Heunniger spotted a plastic bottle among the debris. They take a closer look and saw that there was a piece of laminated paper inside.
Excited about the prospect of finding a message in a bottle, the Heunnigers pulled it out and began reading. To their amazement, the note had come all the way from an elementary school in Scotland.
Since there was not any sea creature on the bottle, they presumed that the message in a bottle was just a few years old.
However, when they send a letter to the school’s address, they got a reply from a former teacher explaining that the letter had been written over 30 years ago in the 1980s!
As it turns out, the school had been shut down long ago when they found the bottle. Let’s learn more about their amazing discovery below.
