Honest, this is not staged. Noticed this wine bottle lying on the beach in San Francisco and, lo and behold, there was a message in it.

    And what did the message say ?? Great capture : )

  • Thank you Sean!! I wish I could tell you it was a mysterious and romantic message sent by someone stranded on a desert island but, alas, A young person with romantic ideas. Says she has been sailing the seas looking for her true love. He is tall, dark and handsome just like the beer and whiskey on this pirate ship!!
