3How did it get there?

Brad believes the bottle got there due to the Tropical Storm Isaias that swept through the area a few days ago. These often unearth things buried on the land or even under the sea. He was out there with his friend and the two thought the bottle with a message in it was a cool find.

4What was inside?

When they opened up the bottle they didn’t find a treasure map or prank message. They found a letter written by Cathi Riddle and her cousin, Stacey Wells. This letter was written 35 years ago and had the date of Aug. 1, 1985. What a coincidence that a letter that was dated in August 1985 was found in August 2020.
