Hawaii girl finds message in a bottle from Oregon

Posted: Updated:

A 9-year-old Big Island girl has found a message in a bottle that floated over the ocean from an
11-year-old Oregon boy.

West Hawaii Today reported Monday Trinity Ballesteros was beachcombing along the shore in Kailua-Kona when she saw a bottle floating in a tide pool.

Inside the bottle was a note scribbled by Thomas Craig of Silverton, Ore., asking for friendship and including an email address for his mother. The two children have been exchanging emails and plan to become pen pals.

The boy tells West Hawaii Today from Oregon that he tossed the bottle in Winchester Bay last year during an annual family summer fishing trip.
