"We found your bottle on the
beach between Montalivet
and Le Gurp in France.
Our position was 45°24'58"N, 1°8'28"W

We spent our Christmas holidays and
we were very keen to find your bottle.
The message was very difficult to read,
because water moved inside. So we
hope we have the right e-mail address!
