Putting a message in a bottle and setting it afloat and waiting for it to come back is a whimsical fantasy many indulge in. However, when 10-year-old Max Vredenburgh put a note in a bottle before throwing it into a sea in Massachusetts, little did he expect it to be returned, and that too nine years later.

Taking to Twitter, Vredenburgh shared the note he wrote in 2010 along with the one he received on October 10 this year. “On August 21, 2010, I threw a message in a bottle into the ocean from a beach in Rockport, MA. On October 10, 2019, that letter was found on the beach in France. I am mind blown. 9 years.”

Vredenburgh’s bottle travelled all the way from Massachusetts and was found in France by a person named G Dubois. Interestingly, Dubois wrote back to Vredenburgh and even shared the exact location where the bottle was found.

Once tweeted, Vredenburgh’s post was shared widely on several social media platforms, with many expressing shock over the bottle being found and returned nine years later.
