Journey of the Ditty-Bag

An interesting story of stuff floating around the ocean - recently a couple found a bag washed ashore near their remote island home on the coast of British Columbia. After mailing off the only items of value left in the bag -- a couple of Starbucks coffee cards -- she got letters back from an Everett fisherman, his dentist and others eager to hear the story.

As it turns out this bag was from a commercial fishing boat Esperanza which sank off San Juan Island in August of 2007. The bag apparently drifted out to sea and up the coast for over 1000 miles before being recovered on a remote beach.

See the Everett Hearald for the full story.
