Message in a Bottle
Volunteers with the Maine Island Trail Association helping to clean up Tibbets Island off the coast of Down East Maine, discovered a note written in a bottle that had placed into the ocean July, 2000. Becky Lee of the Downeast Coastal Conservancy discovered it under a spruce tree. The note reads: “My name is Taryn and I’m 3 years old. I live in Welland, Ontario and spent my 1st real vacation in New Brunswick. I really loved seeing the ocean, but it was very cold so I couldn’t swim in it. I really liked collecting shells and pretty rocks off of the beach. I saw whales and seals. I had so much fun. I hope you like my letter. See ya!”
Taryn would now be fifteen years old. Lee says she would love to find Taryn and let her know she found her note.
