Message in a bottle sparks pandemic pen pals

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An eight-year-old girl has found herself a pen pal after tracking down the sender of a message in a bottle.

Rosa Dustan discovered the letter from Charlie Martin, six, from Cornwall, while walking on South Milton beach in Devon with her family.

Mum Laura Dustan was "amazed" to find the message, which survived about 70 miles by sea from Porthcurnick beach.

Charlie said he started sending the messages after learning people in the "olden days" did not have phones.

How delightful!


I have pen pals from almost every continent... some of them for more than a decade. 

Some are now dear and close friends, others casual acquaintences... All of them treasured.
