Comments: My son & I returned from a trip to Yarmouth where I met
a woman whom I've never met & whom I haven't heard from up until November,
2002. It all began in July, 1970 when my father, mother and I took a N.Y.
Daily News boat trip to pick up newsprint. We departed from New York City
going to Bay Comeau, Canada & the trip took 3 days for us to get there.
Prior to leaving, I typted out 3 letters, all identical, with my name,
address, where we departed from, where we were going, numbered each letter
1, 2, & 3 asking that if anyone found that bottle (with my note inside)
to please contact me. I threw one bottle out into the Atlantic each day.
Just downloaded the picture of the lighthouse for my wallpaper. It will be nice to turn on my computer and see a picture of Yarmouth although it will make me homesick.
My compliments on such a nice site.
Seeing that Cooks Dairy advetisement has my mouth watering for a glass of their chocolate milk.
Always a Yarmouthian

Comments: My son & I returned from our first trip to Yarmouth in
August, 2003 where I met a woman whom I've never met before and whom I
haven't heard from up until November, 2002. It all began in July, 1970
when my father, mother & I took a N.Y. Daily News boat trip to pick
up newsprint. We departed New York City going to Bay Comeau, Canada &
the trip took 3 days for us to get there. Prior to leaving, I typted out
3 letters, all identical, with my name, address, where we departed from,
where we were going, numbered each letter 1, 2, & 3 and asked that
if anybody found one of my bottles (with my note inside) to please contact
me. I threw one bottle out into the Atlantic each day. In October, 1970
I received a letter back from an 11-year-old girl in Nova Scotia saying
that she had found my #2 bottle while digging for clams (I was 15-years-old).
Edith LeBlanc (her childhood name) and I wrote back & forth for 3 years
as penpals until I graduated from high school. I went to college and Edith

Name: Dorothy Sloane
Location: Rochester, New York USA
Comments: Three years ago my husband and I took the CAT over to Yarmouth
for a vacation. On the day we were to leave to come home, my husband
had a heart attack. He suffered very little damage to his heart and
was feeling well, but had to stay in the hospital for one week in Yarmouth.
I stayed in our hotel. I had plenty of time to explore the Yarmouth
area and found it beautiful. I felt that I was in another world, calmer
and more down to earth than where I live. I loved it. I found the
people very friendly and helpful to me. One experience I will never
forget is a day I spent alone at Cape Forchu. I took many pictures
of the lighthouse and the rocks (the lighthouse was under construction).
The area was very calming and "therapeutic" as I was worried about my husband
and a little lonely staying in a hotel. When we arrived home I couldn't
wait to get my black and white film developed. I was upset when the
processor ruined the film and I had no pictures to remind me of this special
place. I know that someday we will come back, but I would like to
find a reminder such as a model lighthouse, some pictures, etc. If
you could e-mail me with a site that I could order something, or an address
of the lighthouse gift shop I would appreciate it.
