It has been lows of 60 and highs of 80+ for weeks. Not a cloud in the sky and light nightly breezes on the beach!!


Message In A Bottle

One of our Rental Managers found a message in a bottle on her morning beach walk a few weeks ago. The message read that it was a symbol of a friend to keep on traveling after her passing. After getting in touch with the person that sent her on her journey this was the response:

This is so Jill loved St. Augustine! I threw the bottle in the water off of Tybee Island at the mouth of the Savannah River meets the ocean on 9/21/14.  We were actually sending her ashes out to sea off the boat and I brought along the bottle as a surprise for our “Sisterhood of  friends”.  If you can get out in a boat or can send it out where it can get out in the ocean and not come back that would be best but I anywhere will be fun!  Please be sure and add your email address and add some “bling” Jill loved bling – any little thing will do – be sure and super glue the cork back also!  We are all just thrilled she has been found!  If you can take a pic of what you add and if you want you and your buddy that is a bonus!  but just sending “Pokey” on her way will be great!exciting!

The owner of Coastal took her back out to sea after adding a sand dollar charm.letter in a bottle 001
