Robinson Crusoe Autograph Model Glass Bottle (Old Chrome #3)
From the same trip to Panama City Beach, Florida as yesterday's photo of Lovely Wife.
This bottle had washed up on the beach, having been in the Gulf of Mexico long enough to grow some barnacles.
I didn't notice it at first, but my future Father In Law did and when I saw him taking photos of something, so I went over to investigate.
It's funny how certain memories stick in your mind so clearly. I distinctly remember laying down on the sand to take this. Probably because I was being so careful to keep the water that was lapping around me from soaking my camera.
There were no messages inside the bottle. I reckon the world is mapped out and populated enough that bottles traveling on the ocean's currents don't carry messages of maroonings like they once did.
