In the absolutely-amazing, faith-in-humanity-restored category news we have a news item which is like a pleasant surprise. A stranger traveled all the way across the country to return a bottled message to a daughter that was put out to sea by her father 50 years ago…yes yes! You heard it right … 5 decades ago.
So, Paul Tsiatsios (now deceased) wrote a note and dropped it in the Atlantic in the 1960s near the Beachcomber Motel in Hampton, which he used to own in New Hampshire along with his wife Tina and here is what the note inside the bottle said, “Return to 419 Ocean Blvd and receive a reward of $150 from Tina, owner of the Beachcomber.”
Tina who is Paul’s daughter received a stranger at her door-step named Clint Buffington of Utah. Clint had found a Coke bottle half-buried in the sand while he was vacationing in the Turks and Caicos and flew across the country to deliver the deceased father’s message to her daughter. What a beautiful gesture!
