Way, way back in the day when I lived in England and Lu and I had just barely started the bucket list thing, we made a little note and stuck it in a bottle and launched it from Eastbourne beach.
I never heard back from anyone, and honestly the bottle probably filled up with water and sunk, but it was really fun :)
Now I think the way we launch messages in bottles is a little more electronic. Like, we’ll post things on the web then wait for someone to find us and tell us how much they agree or disagree or just that they saw us. It’s exhilarating.
