One year ago, off the coast of Oregon, a ten-year-old boy tossed a message in a bottle into the Pacific Ocean, and now a 9-year-old girl in Hawaii has found it.
He added his mother’s email address to this message: “Dear finder of my message, My name is Thomas and I live in Oregon. I’m ten years old and this week I’m salmon fishing deep in the ocean. I would like to hear from you. … Please wright back, Thomas.”
Thomas Craig, of Silverton, Ore., responded to an email from the Hawaiian girl and now the two children are writing to one another as pen pals.
