This past summer 12 year old Justin Greene went to Newfoundland where he placed a message in a bottle into the Atlantic Ocean. That was that.
Fast forward to last week when he got a call from an unknown number. The call came from the tiny island of Alderney which is located in the English channel. On the other line was a man who said he had found the bottle!
In just 6 months the bottle traveled 3,642 kilometres! Which is about the same speed as an OC Transpo bus in a snowstorm.
