Message in Bottle Dropped Into Atlantic Ocean Found 3 Years Later by Fisherman in Morocco

What a cool story.   I will have to try something similar with my son when he gets a little older.

A young Long Island girl and her family has forged an unlikely transatlantic friendship three years after she dropped a message in a bottle into the Atlantic Ocean...

...The bottle had been found by a fisherman, a father of a five named Hassan Elbaz. Elbaz didn’t speak or read English, so his son contacted the Khokhars and sent photos through social media to confirm that the message in a bottle had been delivered.

Sad.   I've been a big fan of the Pebble Time in my time owning it.   Inexpensive, super long battery life,  and it does everything I want a smartwatch to do (tell the time, show me notifications).   Here's hoping they can work it out.
