While at Green Turtle Cay we took the golf cart exploring and stopped at a beautiful beach just minutes from the marina. As Larry walked toward the water something caught his eye. In amongst the sea weed, drift wood and general flotsam and jetsam, he spied an old wine bottle. Oddly enough, the bottle was sealed and appeared to contain something other than wine. On closer inspection the bottle held a bit of money, a hand woven friendship bracelet and a very faded note. Over the next day or so our friend Chris sat down with that faded note and patiently restored the text…
‘Ciao, Bon Jour, Ola, Hola, Hello. I hope this message in a bottle finds you in good spirits and good health. We, the four member crew of the sailboat ‘Quiet’, are curious where the wind and waves will carry this message. So if you some how find it let us know. We are in Grenada right now in the Caribbean Sea and will be leaving to sail across the Atlantic Ocean soon. If you find this message you are surely blessed.’
Below this note were a few gmail addresses that we unfortunately could not decipher, along with a sail boat drawing with the funny disclaimer ‘not drawn to scale’.
Wishfully, I would hope that this post some day, might make a connection between the Independence and Quiet. If anyone out there knows of a four person crew on the sailboat Quiet, please give them this web address. We owe them a bottle of wine!
