— The food and the bottle.

RETURN TO SENDER – first homecomer!

Yesterday I woke up with some fantastic news: An email titled “Found bottle”.

Maree and Paul took their grandchildren and the dog Poppy on a four wheel drive to Turakina Beach, which is on the West Coast of the North Island of New Zealand. There Paul found bottle number IK_0001 on top of a bunch of driftwood. The next day they went to a friends house to open the bottle with everyone. The photos show Paul and the kids with the bottle and Hamish reading out the letter to everyone. Thanks to Maree and Dianne for the quick contact and the photos.

The bottle travelled for 133 days and was found on the 20th on July, south of where Isa put it into the Tasman sea – which means it swam against the East Australia Current. A direct line on the map would sum up to about 112miles/180km, but who knows which way it swam.

How exciting !!! Stay tuned for updates.
Check the MAP to see where and when the bottle was thrown and found.
