Message in a Bottle

"hey maia! i found your message in a bottle at sarah point (Powell River BC) thats pretty cool that you live in a sail boat. By the way my name is Emily :)"

One day I sent out a message in a bottle. And just when I thought I wasn't going to get an answer a message turned up. I'm going to send out way more messages in bottles because it is really exciting to get an answer. 
If you want to put a message in a bottle you'll need to find a dry bottle with a wide neck that you can seal with a cork. Then get a bunch of duct tape and a small peice of paper. Write your message on the paper. You might want to write your age and name and how to contact you. You should write down where you are too! Once you're finished your message, role up the paper really tight and put it in the bottle. Cork it and wrap it with duct tape so it stays dry.
Throw it in an open stretch of water where there is some current. And then wait for an answer!
If you ever find one of my bottles please write me back.

What a cool story. I wonder how many other messages you will be able to send in bottles you will be able to send while traveling the world. :)

I missed your birthday by one day, thinking that it was the 7th & not the 6th. So, I just wanted to send you the very best birthday wishes. I can't believe you are 8 ... holy cow, where does the time go?

I have lost your email address. If you could send it to me that would be great.

Hugs & Kisses,

Thanks Lynne,
I still use my mum and dad's email. We are trying to set my own up but haven't yet.
I like being eight! It's fun.
