Bottled Message

A message in a bottle launched from the Bahamas in 2008 has been discovered almost 3,000 miles away in the Azores, a group of Portuguese islands in the Atlantic Ocean.

Seventh-grader Dustin Colson and sixth-graders Liam Griffith and Hannah Flood packed the message. Hannah’s father and uncle dropped the message into waters off the coast of the Bahamas in March 2008 while setting weather buoys. The students live in Maine and had forgotten all about the message until its discovery this month.
