Whale Mail

If you’re heading to the beach as the summer ends, keep your eyes peeled for rolls of paper in the “trash” you pass.  I just read an article about a young man, Clint Buffington, who has developed a knack for finding messages in bottles. He has found 40(!) so far and says he’s just getting started.  The article dubbed messages in bottles as “whale mail” and I thought it was worth sharing with you because messages in bottles are like mail art, but infused with a bit more adventure.

Here’s Clint doing his favorite activity:

Clint has started a website where he posts the messages in bottles that he finds and also seeks help in contacting the original senders. Check it out!
