Message in a Bottle

Found on Hawksbill Cay, The Bahamas

5/26/2019 – Found!

Washed up with literally TONS of trash on the windward side of the island was the above bottle with a rolled piece of paper inside. We hoped for a long lost love letter or even just a “here I am, where did this end up?”, message but the writing was gone.

I will post more detailed pictures of the bottle. If anyone recognizes this, let us know!

Enjoy the adventure! And safe travels,

Codax wine – Spain
Albariño bottle

From the Codax wine website:

“Martin Codax, the character who gave name to our Albariño was one of the most important medieval Galician troubadours. Parchment Vindel houses his ballads, the oldest in the Galician-Portuguese, extolling love and passion for the sea.”

Talk about a “passion for the sea”! It would be amazing if this actually was carried to The Bahamas from Spain. It almost makes me wish there had been a tiny camera attached.
