The ocean hides away many secrets; this family was lucky to discover one of them. The family from Perth, Western Australia, found an unusual bottle on the shore while walking along the sandy beach.
Tonya Illman loved the style of the bottle so she decided to take it home, having no clue what was inside. At first, they noticed something, reminding of a “rolled up cigarette,” then they understood it was a note that sat there for quite a long time. When they dried it up carefully in the oven and unrolled the fragile piece, they could read that a letter was tossed on June 12, 1886, from the ship named Paula.
