After 14 years and an ocean trek of nearly 10,000 km, a bottle with a message has
popped up in the dunes along the beaches of Southwestern Australia''s Big Quaram Beach.
In February 1997, George Tereshkovich, a retired Texas Tech University professor, was aboard a cruise liner along with his wife. Out of curiosity, he wrote a message, sealed it in a bottle and tossed that into the ocean.
