Amy Niemann grew up in Satellite Beach, but she never thought she'd find anything truly significant in this sand. So when a bottle containing a message, washed up at her feet, she was more than surprised.
"I just could believe that," she said. "I had just found a message in a bottle… on the night of the blue moon."
The bottle is covered in barnacles and had message written in Spanish.
"It's handwritten, in cursive and the handwriting is not very good."
She reached out to a lot of people, including a professor at the University of Miami, who responded with an email providing some answers.
"It's a woman who wrote the letter," she explains. The letter is addressed to "Yemaya," a goddess of the sea in the Santeria religion, which is practiced by in parts of Cuba.
"Imploring and begging, the goddess of the sea to, give her safe travels to Angola, so that she can work and raise money, so that her son can be inducted into this ah… religion."
The Miami professor suggests she should throw the bottle back in the sea. Amy's considering it.
