Mystery over love bottle has made quite the splash
The discovery of a bottle washed ashore on a deserted island off Northern Ireland reads like a romantic mystery.
Inside were letters and photographs, apparently of a young couple - the man from Groomsport and the woman from California. So why was their loving missives set afloat? That question has still to be answered.
In a world where messages can be exchanged at the touch of a keyboard, there is something delightfully old-fashioned about this.
Did the bottle cross oceans or did it drift ashore within sight of the coast from which it was launched? Has love floundered or is it still afloat?
