There's just something cool about a 'message in a bottle' story. Over the last year or so, I've seen a few of these stories pop up in the media including one tale of a bottle recently found in Corolla, NC after being deposited in the ocean off of New Jersey in 1969. Side note: a sibling of the note writer left a comment on our blog.
So I figure, if I think they are interesting stories, maybe some others do as well. So with that said, here's a MIAB (geek acronym for message in a bottle) story recently reported by WECT about a bottle launched from the Canary Islands in Spain and found here at Fort Fisher, NC.
To add a little flair to the story, I've included a visual aid (geek term for something to look at).
