Scuba Diving – Friend Plans Sun, 25 Jul 2021 07:26:40 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Scuba Diving – Friend Plans 32 32 Christin Louise Lindner (Weller) | Obituary Sun, 25 Jul 2021 07:00:00 +0000

Langevin • El Paraiso Funeral Home

On Wednesday July 14, 2021, our beloved Christin Louise Lindner (Weller), wife, daughter, sister, aunt and fierce friend, passed away peacefully in her sleep at the age of 48 alongside her husband John Jeffry. Lindner. While holding his hand, she left us to move on to prepare a home for us in Heaven.

Christin was born on May 27, 1973 in Pullman, WA to Dr Dick and Jody Weller. Along with her older sister, Carrie, she and her family eventually moved to Castro Valley, California, while her father served in the US Army Veterinary Corps. Younger brother Mark was added to the family in 1975 just before they moved to Davis, California. After a brief hiatus in Muhammad, Illinois, Christin and her family were finally able to put down roots in Selah, WA in 1979. Her second brother, David, joined the family in 1984. Saying that she was active in school affairs and community is a gross understatement. She was on the Selah Dolphins, Vikolairs, Selah Players, Women’s College Soccer and Young Life swim teams to name a few. She was chosen Miss Selah in 1990 which elicited a huge smile from the Queen accentuated by the large dimples she inherited from her grandmother Betty. The family home was a hub of activity and a gathering place for his classmates and friends. A proud 1991 Selah High graduate (Go Vikings!) On August 7, 2004, to her surprise, she married John Jeffry Lindner. At the time, he was an officer in the Issaquah Police Department and she taught in the Highline School District. Like her mother, she was an excellent teacher. Whenever they got together or spoke on the phone, you could always count that the conversation would be about the program, the management of the class, or the behavior of the students at some point. She has dedicated 25 years of her life educating the children of the Highline School District, primarily at Southern Heights Elementary School. (Come on Bulldogs!) She later devoted her considerable energies to the Highline School District Mentorship Program to help new teachers develop their teaching and classroom management skills. During the COVID pandemic, she was able to successfully switch to distance learning in order to continue serving children in her district.

Christin loved to travel especially with his family and friends. She enjoyed traveling to Italy, France, Switzerland and the Hawaiian Islands very much, but her favorite place on the planet was Belize, where she and Jeff spent their honeymoon. Christin was taking risks and was willing to do things that would scare most people. One of the things on her to-do list was cage diving with great white sharks! She loved being in the water, whether swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving. Although she was literally born on the WSU campus, she was a die-hard Husky fan. She was looking forward to the opening game of the 2021 football season and the chance to spend time with her brothers, friends and relatives. Game day was a family event for her! Now that she’s joined her grandmother Betty Foulkes in Heaven, we’d expect them from that vantage point to loudly applaud the Dawgs on game day. May Heaven help Washington’s enemies! She was a sucker for romantic movies and drama series, and was known to over-watch old and new releases. She loved her garden and the flowers that grew there and attracted a variety of birds; especially the hummingbirds that visited her as she observed them outside her window. Christin was a detail-oriented person who loved to plan events and parties. She hoped that after she retired from teaching, she could become a wedding or event planner. She was proud to be a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution thanks to her father’s ancestry detectives. This was another bond, besides teaching, that she shared with her mother. Christin had a huge heart and was fiercely loyal and protective of her friends and family. You could always count on her to love them, support them and help them no matter what.

Christin is predeceased by her sister Carrie Sliger, her grandmothers Betty Foulkes and Marge Kneifel, her grandfather Joe L Kneifel and her great-grandmothers Gene Palmer and Della Rogers. She is survived by her husband John Jeffry Lindner, who will always love and miss her until the end of time, her parents Dick and Jody Weller, her brothers Mark Weller and David Weller (Melody), her nephew Kyle Sliger, whom she loved very much, niece Shelbi Delmont and Chris Moar (Tarra), her brother from another mother, and her family. Christin was also very close to Jeff’s family members including his parents John and Carol Lindner, his brother-in-law JJ Lindner, his sister-in-law Michelle (Greg) Morris and his nieces and nephew Olyvia Lindner, Daisy Morris and Keegan Morris. , respectively.

A memorial service honoring his life will be held on July 31, 2021 at 3:00 pm at the Langevin El Paraiso Funeral Home located at 1010 W. Yakima Avenue, Yakima, WA, 98902. The service will be available via Facebook live-stream. To access the link on the day of the service, please visit In lieu of flowers, those who wish are encouraged to donate to her favorite charities, Rod’s House in Yakima, WA and Mary’s Place in Burien, WA.

Review: Dreams on the Coast Fri, 23 Jul 2021 17:32:05 +0000

Feeling stupid in a reverse current

Over the past month, the ocean waters have become seasonally warm and unusually large waves have hit almost after daylight. When they do, our beaches are pretty dangerous. Two Sundays ago I watched the lifeguard at Diver’s Cove save 25 tourists in three hours – I know because I counted.

My favorite beach / cove – not Diver’s – is small, has a rocky bottom and spikes on both sides. One point is the pure and large bedrock; the other is low with rocks sharp as razors. About 75 meters offshore is a small reef on which the waves break and is great for surfing.

When the waves are large, the millions of tons of water pushed towards the shore will quickly return to the ocean in the form of strong tides. They are so powerful that even very strong swimmers cannot fight them.

When the waves are big in my cove, they break over the reef and the resulting foam rushes towards the point at the south end. Once they reach that point, they bounce in a straight side tear and run parallel to the beach towards the Razor Rocks point at the north end. If you happen to get caught in that side tear, you’re either going to hit those razor-sharp rocks or be swept out to sea by another tear that heads straight ahead. Once you’re on the outside, there’s yet another side tear in the opposite direction that brings you straight back into the surf line.

It’s a big circle of waves and tears – a giant washing machine – and it’s very dangerous.

I know all of the above. I have been a waterman for years, surfing, body boarding, scuba diving, snorkeling, even sailing. I know the ocean, and I sure know that if you forget how dangerously temperamental she is, she can — Ney, probably — kill you.

Nonetheless, and this shows you how stupid I can be, a week ago a stupid friend at the beach named Steve convinced me and another stupid guy, Paul, to swim to the reef even though the waves were running. We all dived, swam a few fathoms, then glanced towards the shore and noticed that the tear had already taken us 30 meters. I thought, “F… that’s stupid” and yelled at the other guys to swim straight, which we all did. However, my personal positioning was in the side tear and it took me straight to the razor-sharp rocks of the northern tip. I thought, “F …” again and fought the side tear as hard as I could. It lasted about 10 minutes and quickly drained my energy, but I finally made it to shore and was so tired I could barely stand up.

So, okay, I was stupid. But what happened two days later was even more stupid. The ocean looked calm – hardly any big sets – and I swam again.

And again, I was wrong. Three sets in a row, some 10 waves, roared through, and I got caught in the side tear, but far enough that I could fight it if I swam with all my might. I did, but when I finally reached shore I crawled.

There it is. I was careless and it was stupid, stupid, stupid.

If you think you might be safe in the water during big surf, you are wrong. Do not do that. It is treacherous. In a minute of panic, you will be exhausted, and in the absence of a lifeguard, you will drown.

So be careful. Do not do that.

Cave Creek Couple Want $ 10,000 Refund For “Canceled” Overseas Flight | 3 on your side Thu, 22 Jul 2021 00:51:00 +0000

A Cave Creek couple turned to 3 On Your Side for a refund after paying $ 10,000 for a trip that never took place.

CAVE CREEK, AZ (3TV / CBS 5) – Mark Scaggs was looking forward to a dream vacation in Bali with his wife Donna. “You know, we love scuba diving and we love snorkeling and it’s a change of pace,” Mark told 3 On Your Side.

So, in 2019, the couple decided to take the trip of a lifetime. They booked two return tickets to a small island off the coast of Bali, using United Airlines. “Yeah, it’s one of those things you see on TV,” he said. “A once in a lifetime vacation chain or something like that.”

The couple paid $ 9,797 for the plane ticket. But when March 2020 arrived, COVID-19 shut everything down and the couple called United Airlines to book their vacation for August. “The general consensus was that it was going to heat up and COVID-19 would go away, so we said to go in late summer just to be on the safe side. So we booked it for August.”

But August 2020 arrived, and the country was still in the midst of the pandemic. So Mark and Donna rescheduled their $ 10,000 United tickets for September of this year. However, their next trip was recently canceled. Not by them but by United Airlines. “And he just said your trip was canceled. We have an email that basically says we have no other way to get you there and your flight is canceled,” Mark said.

It turns out that United Airlines has ended its flights to Bali, which means they no longer fly there.

Mark and Donna say they are disappointed, but at least thought they would get their $ 10,000 back. “The United Airlines agent walked the entire route and said we can now get a credit on our credit card. She gave the credit card number.” Rick said. “Did you think you got your money back?” 3 Gary Harper of On Your Side asked. “Yes, she said we were,” he replied.

But this reimbursement never came. Why? Well, when Mark and Donna rescheduled due to COVID-19 restrictions, United Airlines converted their tickets into vouchers for future travel, and United said they were not refunding vouchers.

So the couple reached out to 3 On Your Side to hopefully get their $ 10,000 back. “I hope you can work your magic and get somebody out there with some logic to say these people paid. You canceled; you owe them the money.”

3 On Your Side has contacted United Airlines, who says they are investigating the issue.

When the airline decides whether or not to return the $ 10,000, I will let you know in a follow-up report.

Stay tuned.

Yellowknife diver discovers can of beer with “sticking out” threads. Then the RCMP bomb squad arrived Tue, 20 Jul 2021 23:53:37 +0000

Scuba diver Jeremy Macdonald finds a lot of random objects while diving under the waters of the Yellowknife area, but most of the time they are rubbish.

He and his friends tend to pick up bottles, cans, cell phones, trash, golf balls, hooks, once an old anchor – and even guns.

But recently he came across some particularly unusual debris.

“I was sorting out some of the things that we had chosen, like taking out the garbage, taking out the recycling. And one of the cans had a few threads sticking out, ”Macdonald told CBC.

“So I pulled on the wires to see what it was and clean it up… it turned out there were four detonators that hadn’t fired sticking out.”

Very gently, he put the box down and walked away.

How do you deal with “unexploded objects” in Yellowknife, he wondered.

Macdonald says he called a few friends who deal with explosives. They told him to call the RCMP.

Canadian diver Molson found Jeremy Macdonald, along with the detonators he was holding. (Jérémy Macdonald)

Something that makes ‘kaboom’

“I called them and told them I had an improvised explosive device… then I described what it was. They sent a few cars and they examined it,” he said.

Yellowknife police confirmed to CBC that they received a call about a suspected explosive on Saturday, just after noon, and that the RCMP bomb squad in Alberta had been called for help. Macdonald said photos of the suspected explosive were sent to these officers.

Meanwhile, the box had to be moved, Macdonald said, because it was still by the side of the road, where he had originally brought it, so he could throw it in the nearby trash.

“I was trying to shake it to get the trash out. And that’s before I realized that, hey, maybe something’s wrong here,” he said.

“We decided I moved it to an area behind the house that was surrounded by bedrock and was pretty safe and away from any place people might be.”

Yellowknife RCMP said the Alberta mine clearance team arrived on Sunday and “cleared the device without incident.”

“No robots, no moon suits”

The response of officers from Alberta who came to hunt the potential bomb was somewhat anti-climate.

“No robots, no moon suits, no guys in explosive uniforms or anything,” McDonald said with a laugh.

What’s more, Macdonald said the box was actually found a few days before and was sitting in the back of his truck, drying out.

“Which may not have helped the situation,” he said. “From now on, I think we’ll deal with the debris the same day or the next and not leave it lying around just in case there’s something exciting about it.”

He says if it was an improvised explosive device, “it’s probably the most Canadian IED you can see because it was in a can of Molson Canadian,” which he said. found it hilarious afterwards.

“Some people speculated online that it was like a redneck fishing device that someone threw in the water to try and get the fish to come up… but we don’t know. I’ve never seen one like it. that underwater myself. “

RCMP said there was no criminal investigation related to the incident and “the case is now closed.”

Free and squeezy – Divernet Tue, 20 Jul 2021 11:39:11 +0000

APNEA – ESSENTIALLY IT’S SNORKELING with good public relations. This involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about it?

It wasn’t a question I often asked myself until I showed up for a shore dive with an empty cylinder and a handful of misplaced optimism. The urge to immerse yourself is still strong, even when everyone with a working compressor has gone out of business.

Scuba relies on the services of shops and dive centers to give you something to breathe. Apnea does not have such a complication. As long as you have a mask and fins, you can snorkel. Play!

The water temperature is 13 ° C, and I’m there with my drysuit. What could go wrong?

“Tell me you’re not going to snorkel,” my mate laughs as I begin to squeeze my feet into the boots of my drysuit.

Well, technically no, because I don’t have a tuba. But I didn’t come a three-hour drive from London to come back without getting wet.

A snorkel is unnecessary clutter as far as I’m concerned. When attached to your mask strap, it’s the diving equivalent of a trip hazard.

A snorkel stuffed with a knife strap on your calf is invariably forgotten. Until you’re back on the boat. Where you don’t need it.

A jumping boat would be useful at this time. I hurtle down the stony slope of the beach and wade through the waves to put on my fins. It’s so much easier without the weight of the scuba gear.

I swim far from shore. Moving on the surface like a cork, I am determined to visit the seabed. He must be out there somewhere. Screw is not great.

As soon as I duck dive, I feel the air in my wetsuit migrating from my shoulders to my boots. My fins are likely to come off as I fight and make my way underwater.

The seabed is literally in my face. I can practically stand here.

Season 1, Episode 2, “New Day” Mon, 19 Jul 2021 02:00:00 +0000

Image of the article titled Fortunes Change and Doubt Spreads in Ever Sneaky White Lotus

Photo: HBO

In the new documentary Roadrunner, on the life and death of Anthony Bourdain, extract from an episode of Bourdain’s show in 2011 No reservations. In it, Josh Homme – Bourdain’s close friend and frontman of the band Queens of the Stone Age – says of the “bittersweet curse” of travel, “Nothing feels better than coming home, and nothing doesn’t feel better than leaving the house. ” At first it seemed that holidaymakers from The white lotus might agree with the latter part of this statement, and might indulge in the joy of being away from the familiar and experiencing it in the new. But now we are on the second day of living in Heaven, and in “New Day” we see how quickly fortunes can change – figuratively, of course! Of course, we know someone dies at the end of this week in Hawaii. Losing their money, however? Crazy! Is Mike White really that cruel?

“New Day” is a whirlwind of episodes, so jam-packed with plot and character development and so interspersed with ironic asides and satirical moments that I had to stop my normal recap-writing process, which is to take notes during an episode and then going through them, highlighting in different colors different elements of the episode that I want to discuss. When I was halfway through my grade review and virtually every grade line was already highlighted, I knew I was fighting a losing battle. There is so much grandeur here: Olivia and Paula’s flippant egocentricity as they fear they will be bored an all-expenses-paid vacation on a beautiful island then console himself by withdrawing more and more drugs. The dismayed look that resort employees share when they see how Shane attacks the breakfast buffet like a hungry man rather than what he really is, who is a tight-fisted who just tries to eat as much as he can for upset the hotel. As Rachel is lost for words when Nicole transforms into a second from a tasteless feminist who supports women into a megalomaniac who targets the jugular, precisely cruel. And the mirrored looks of Steve Zahn and Connie Britton in absolute bewilderment when Mark learns from his uncle how his father really died! Testicular cancer? Not really.

The white lotus hosts tonal balance masterclasses in each scene of “New Day” and also effectively advances each subplot. “Arrivals” was devoted to character introductions, relationship setups, and introducing tension between customers and resort employees. “New Day” deepens, probing the irregular and out of sync ways these two groups communicate with each other and without each other. Mark learns he doesn’t have cancer and everyone’s reactions seem muted. Nicole is thrilled, but treats the news like she’s ticking a box on a to-do list, while Olivia, Paula, and Quinn barely blink. Shane and Rachel are all about “honeymoon sex frenzy,” but he couldn’t less respect his career. “It’s just click traps like waking, trendy, high-minded bullshit,” Shane says (in the true mind of every man whose shitty comments appear in my hidden responses on Twitter!), And this self-involved line isn’t even the worst to come out of his mouth in this little speech. That honor goes to “Welcome to the rest of your wonderful life”: is that really what Rachel wants?

It is a bit late to question yourself, and yet moments of doubt permeate “New Day”. The episode starts off with a little bit of hope, with Mark’s cancer-free diagnosis encouraging him to say “I have, like, a new life” and commit to diving with Quinn; Tanya still basks in the glow of Belinda’s holistic health treatment; and Rachel thinking she might score an interview with Nicole, whom she had previously written about in a listicle. But White doesn’t allow his characters to linger in optimism – to fantasize within him – for very long.

Mark gets the most grace, with “New Day” spent in a sunny glow (“We have no problems. We have food to eat, family, we are healthy and alive”) before may his sense of identity and masculinity not be shattered by the revelation that the father he idolized as a pillar of heterosexual strength was gay, led a double life, and died of AIDS. Rachel, thinking she can prove Shane wrong by scoring an interview with Nicole, kicks a hornet’s nest upon learning that the article she wrote – which she assumed no one had. lu – was actually consumed and hated by Nicole. Her husband tells her her job is a joke, and a woman she admires tells her that she sucks at this shitty job. Alexandra Daddario might be the most pleasantly surprising member of this ensemble cast so far, not because she’s already been bad at anything (her supporting role in the first season of Real detective was incredibly bubbling, and she brings a truly unsettling faith to the ’80s horror comedy tribute We invoke darkness) but because the role of Rachel offers so many opaque and mystifying layers. Does Rachel really like her job, or does she think she’s good at it, or does she think it’s worth it? Would it be bad to stop working because of the principle of giving up her independence, or because she would give up her independence to Shane? She looked positively shocked to walk away from this conversation with Nicole, and the words “Have a nice vacation” sounded like a curse.

I’ve covered the clients at the resort, but “New Day” also spends enough time on Armond that it’s clear that his sobriety, his war with Shane, and his so far close relationship with Belinda are all going to be elements. central to history. The self-doubt that plagues Armond after he realizes Lani, “I was criticizing her all day, and she was at work,” did not immediately make me think that Armond would break his sobriety of five years old, but as soon as Olivia and Paula’s drug backpack arrived in her office, the writing was on the wall. Murray Bartlett does a great job when Armond thinks no one is looking at him, as his face pinches as he walks away from Shane, who again complains about the Pineapple sequel and puts his mother’s travel agent Lorenzo on the case. But the pill he takes after lying to Olivia and Paula about their missing hiding place seems like the first step on a really bad path – and I have to admit I’m also wary of the relationship developing between Belinda and Tanya. .

I have no doubt that Tanya really appreciates the way Belinda has helped her or that her invitation to dinner with Belinda was truly well-meaning, and I also don’t think her gushing over Belinda during the meal was not sincere. But unlike all hotel guests, who, whether sober or high, can avoid the clearly passing Tanya, Belinda lacks that ability. She cannot refuse the invitation of a guest at the risk of offending him. And once Tanya offers to invest in Belinda, Belinda also cannot refuse other appointments or events together. Money is a lure, and everyone at White Lotus needs it, and it distorts and affects every interaction they have. Except, again, for Quinn, who also retains her purity in this episode. Does her time sleeping on the beach cross her screen haze? Her wonderful “What the fuck is this” seeing that killer whale break-in was a nice reminder of the natural world this resort is in and so many guests seem to ignore. Quinn not just shit over there, girls– he realizes that maybe his belief that nothing would be better than going home is wrong.

Stray observations

  • Excellent editing during this final scene, with Belinda’s confession: “With the customers here, it’s mostly rich whites. And to be honest, I struggle with that, ”and our cycling through the Mossbacher, the Patton and their little disagreements.
  • Yes Olivia and Paula are absolutely nightmarish, but “We only do witchcraft” and “Make offerings to Hecate” made me laugh a lot, as did “We weren’t lesbians, Daddy” and “We were were sea witches. “These two speak their own language, and it both scares and amuses me both, like Mark and Nicole, I’m sure, as we saw when Paula dared to say the word ‘colonialism’ .
  • “Just a bus boy”? You don’t throw Kekoa Kekumano, young Aquaman, to play just a busboy! I guess whoever that White Lotus employee is, they’re going to come between Olivia and Paula (friends, lovers, whoever they are) in the next few episodes.
  • This isn’t the last time we see Armond rummaging through Olivia and Paula’s drug backpack, right? Reminder of what’s in it: herb, Adderall, Ambien, Xanax, Klonopin and ketamine.
  • A nightmare I could never have expected: the possibilities suggested in the sentence “Who is her doctor, Lena Dunham?” “
  • Oh, and another: “Are our clits going to explode?”
  • Guess I’ll think about it every episode, but: have Shane and Rachel never discussed the practicalities of their life after marriage? Shane expects Rachel to stop working so casually (“Now you just do what you wanna do, whatever it is”) that it’s clear he just assumed that she would devote the rest of her life to being his wife. I’m going to go with “controlling” rather than “altruistic” for this.
  • This week’s Best Online Reading awards go to Connie Britton, who makes the distinction between bewildered and resentful with her “It Was a Fucked Piece” to Rachel, and Steve Zahn, whose “Liv, Your Mom Ain’t. not Putin “irritated. was really perfect comedic timing. Good job, the Mossbacher!
  • Speaking of Zahn, Mark’s line “You are still being born into life” is very similar to what Belinda said to Tanya in the first episode: “Every moment I was born into this life. Is this just a dialogue overlap from White, or has Mark also seen Belinda in an offscreen scene?

A diver found a message in a bottle dated 1926. Then the hunt began for the family of the man who wrote it. | Way of life Sat, 17 Jul 2021 07:30:00 +0000

Jennifer Dowker was scuba diving in Michigan recently to clean her glass-bottom tour boat when something caught her eye: a little green glass bottle.

Dowker, 45, swam about 10 feet down the Cheboygan River to pick it up and was delighted to find there was a note coiled inside.

“I thought, ‘A message in a bottle? Cool!’ Said Dowker, who for the past three years has taken visitors on cruises and wreck tours as the owner of Nautical North Family Adventures in the small town of Cheboygan.

When she surfaced, Dowker said, she held up the bottle and called one of her part-time employees, Rob Hemmer, who also works at a local history museum in Cheboygan County.

“I shouted, ‘Pick up my phone and take a picture, I just found a message in a bottle!’ Dowker remembers.

“Rob took out the broken cap from the bottle with his knife and drained the water, then we carefully took out the note,” she said of the relic. “It was wet and we were surprised to find that we could still read it. “

They were also amazed to learn that the note was almost a century old. The message was written on unlined white paper and was dated November 1926, almost 95 years ago.

“Will the person who finds this bottle bring this paper back to George Morrow Cheboygan, Michigan and say where it was found?” he read.

Dowker said she knew right away what she was going to do.

While Hemmer took the 95-year-old note home and put it in his freezer to dry, Dowker posted the photos he took on his company’s Facebook page in hopes of finding someone who could have known the man who wrote the message.

“So look what I found when I was washing the windows and sailing with the fish,” she wrote. “Any Morrow out there knows a George Morrow who wrote that around 1926?” “

“The COOLEST night dive EVER,” she added.

Dowker said she thought it would be fun if a few people liked her post and passed it on to help find those close to Morrow.

Instead, she woke up the next morning and was stunned to find that thousands of people liked the post, which has now been shared over 114,000 times.

Even more remarkable, she said, around 50 of those people rushed to help, offering leads on people they believed to be related to George Morrow.

One of the self-proclaimed online assistants was René Szatkowski from Grand Blanc, Michigan, who wrote: “I FOUND THE GIRL !!!! They don’t have Facebook … she’s delighted!

Szatkowski said she found Morrow’s daughter, Michele Primeau, through her father’s online obituary.

“I called her and started the conversation by saying, ‘You don’t know me and it can be really weird, but there are people looking for you on the internet,'” said Szatkowski, 48.

“I know I would cherish something like this from my own family’s past,” she said, explaining why she got involved.

Primeau, a retired teacher who lives in Farmington Hills, Mich., Said she was thrilled when Szatkowski told her the story of the bottle and put her in touch with Dowker.

“My dad was really sentimental, and I could see him doing something like that,” she said. “When we were kids and we went camping in Lake Huron, I remember he did the same thing once. He put a note in a bottle and threw it in the lake.

Primeau, 74, said his father was a WWII army veteran who fought in the Battle of Normandy in 1944. He died in 1995 of dementia-related causes at the age of 85 years old, she said.

Morrow was originally from Cheboygan, she added, but he and his mother, AnnEss Morrow, eventually moved to Pontiac, Michigan, where she and her brother grew up.

“My mom was an extreme extrovert, while my dad was calm and laid back,” Primeau said. “He didn’t like a lot of attention, so he probably would want to hide if he was here and knew the story of his note in the bottle had been around the world.”

She said she was especially happy when she saw the date her father had written at the top of the note.

“My father was born in November and I can imagine him going down to the river on his 18th birthday and throwing the bottle there,” said Primeau.

Her father’s funny antics continued throughout her life, she said.

“Every year on the anniversary of his meeting with my mother, he would call her on the phone and ask her if she would like to go out with him,” said Primeau.

“I guess I really shouldn’t be surprised that a note he wrapped in a bottle returns after 95 years,” she added.

Dowker, a mother of three teenagers, said she often wondered what it would be like to find an old note in a bottle.

And once she did, she said, she wanted to return it to the rightful owner’s daughter.

But Primeau said she started to think, “Wouldn’t it be nice if Jenn could keep it in her office so everyone who came in could see it?” she said.

“It will be a way for my father to live. I really like the idea of ​​sharing it, ”said Primeau.

In return, Dowker had an offer.

“I told Michele that she now has a lifetime boat pass,” she said. “Anytime she wants, I’ll take her out on the water.” She thinks she will be released in September and I would love to take her on one of my wreck tours.

“Wouldn’t it be cool if now we also found a treasure map?”
