Release Date 8/12/2007

I released this message in the Hudson River around 23rd St. on an ebbing tide.

I forgot my camera, but I found this really nice top quality boat bumper, and brought it back with some difficulty. It weighs about 30 lbs, and is about 3ft in diameter. I saw it 4 days ago way uptown when I was on my bike, and I found it again hooked in some rocks around Gansevort St. I donated it to the Downtown Boathouse. New these things probably cost at least $50.

I did a trip for the New York Kayak Company. We paddled up from Pier 40 to 42nd St. in a really strong ebb tide.

We found the ball on the way back.

It was a really nice day, bright and sunny with 10kt SW wind.

Truth: It's good to see things one last time before they are gone forever.

HI TIM
I FOUND YOUR BOTTLE TODAY,6/25/09, ON THE SEVEN PRESIDENTS BEACH IN LONG BRANCH, NJ. IT WAS RELEASED 8/12/07 IN THE HUDSON RIVER. 2 YEARS AT SEA AND THE PLASTIC SCOTCH BOTTLE LOOKS HARDLY WORN. AN EARLY MORNING WALK FOUND ME ON A OTHERWISE BEAUTIFUL BEACH, PIPING PLOVER NESTS WITHIN SIGHT, LITTERED WITH PLASTIC BOTTLES. I COULDN'T ENJOY MYSELF WALKING PAST ALL THAT TRASH. FOUND A BAG AND STARTED PICKING STUFF UP. YOUR BOTTLE WAS RIGHT ON THE SHORELINE. WILL ADMIT THE DOLLAR CAUGHT MY EYE, GOOD IDEA. GLAD I FINALLY FOUND A MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE...
