Woman Reunites With Message in a Bottle She Tossed Into Sea Nearly 2 Decades Ago
In 2001, Emily Edwards was just 7 when she wrote a note to her future self, put it in a bottle and watched it float away while on vacation in Wales. She promptly forgot about it.
In 2001, Emily Edwards was just 7 when she wrote a note to her future self, put it in a bottle and watched it float away while on vacation in Wales.
She promptly forgot about it.
So when a runner found the bottle and got in touch with Edwards, now a 25-year-old mother of one, she was stunned. “I phoned my dad looking for confirmation that I wasn’t going mad, but he confirmed that I did send the message as a 7-year-old," Edwards told Caters News Agency.
Unfortunately, the note was water-damaged and illegible.
But Edwards still can't believe it. "Can't get my head around how it hasn't been picked up as litter or anything like that," she said.
"It's a brilliant story to tell my little girl when she's older and we can try doing the same when she understands a bit more and hopefully maybe hers will come back one day," she added.
