Jessie and John Rodriguez look out on a sunny coastline in Myrtle Beach in November where they fell in love 49 years ago. In 2000, John Rodriguez penned a message in a bottle commemorating their love and threw it in the Atlantic Ocean near Pawleys Island. A few years later, a South Carolina couple living in the Bahamas found the bottle washed ashore on a secluded beach nearly 600 miles away from where the bottle’s journey began.
