The bottle washed ashore further south in the Florida Keys, in Islamorada. It was discovered by a man named Ross, who called a delighted Smith to give her an update. He also left a note of his own.
Ross then took Smith's ashes six miles out to sea, and set the bottle afloat. Over the weekend, Judi Glunz Sidney, co-owner of a resort in Key Colony Beach, 28 miles south, found it onshore. She also called Smith, and transferred Scott's ashes to a rum bottle ("You know, added a little fun to his trip."). The bottle was then launched off of Seven Mile Bridge in Marathon, so Scott can resume his travels. Here's to going out in style.
