9-Year-Old in Hawaii Finds Message in a Bottle From Oregon Boy

9-Year-Old in Hawaii Finds Message in a Bottle From Oregon Boy

We were charmed by the story of 10-year-old Thomas Craig, who tossed a bottle containing a message into the ocean off the coast of Oregon a year ago. Nearly a year later, 9-year-old Trinity Ballesteros found it as she was beach combing in Hawaii, 2,000 miles away.

Thomas never expected anyone to find the message. In fact, he thought the bottle had broken and sunk when it hit his grandfather's boat as he threw it in the ocean.

His note read: "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." Trinity responded by email (Thomas had provided his mom's email address), and the two now plan to become pen pals.
