Messages in a bottle…

Feeling marooned on this island we’re on? Time to dispatch a bottle!

Apparently, bottled messages date to about 310 B.C., and were used in Greek water current studies.

This early form of email (sea-mail?) went viral in the sixteenth century, when Queen Elizabeth I reputedly created an official position of “Uncorker of Ocean Bottles.”

Back here in 21st century Wales, Chloe sent out her message to us to create the collaged contents of a bottle.

Beth’s bottle, containing an actual desert island, complete with palm tree was the first to land in Conwy.

That was swiftly followed on the incoming tide by Rachel’s – a botanical bottle, alive with plants.

Trish’s, meanwhile, contains a four-legged friend bearing flowers!
