Mary! Your message in a bottle has arrived...28 years later 瑪莉!你的瓶中信…遲了28年後,來了

A Canadian man’s message in a bottle honoring his promise to write to a woman named Mary has finally washed ashore 28 years later in Croatia.


Surfers cleaning the debris from a beach at the mouth of the Neretva river in the southern Adriatic came across a half-broken bottle with a paper inside, Croatian newspaper Dubrovack Vjesnik said on its website.

克羅埃西亞報紙Dubrovack Vjesnik網站報導,在亞得里亞海南部內雷特瓦河口的沙灘上清理垃圾的衝浪客,無意中發現一個半破裂、裡面塞了一張紙的瓶子。

A 23-year-old local surfer, who gave her name as Matea, nearly threw it away when she spotted a wet paper inside, which contained a message from Jonathon in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, which lies on Canada’s eastern coast.


"Mary, you really are a great person. I hope we can keep in correspondence. I said I would write. Your friend always, Jonathon, Nova Scotia, 1985," said the message.
