We got to the beach in no time. The sun was still high in the sky, making it more than warm enough for everyone to be looking forward to getting to the ocean. We set up camp on the higher part of the beach, close enough so that the trip down to the water wouldn’t be long and tiring but far enough away to where the tides wouldn’t hit our camps. The camps were sort of sad heaps of everything we had saved from the crashed plane and burning building.

It stuck up out of the water to much to just be the water reflecting light and drawing all of us in with curiosity. We were headed toward the water anyways to cool off in the nice water so I ran ahead to see what the reflective object bobbing in the water was, leaving Emma with Sara to wait until we knew the water was fine for her two swim in.

As Sara read the note aloud I could see that Ethan had tears in his eyes and one streaking down his cheek. I didn 't know why but the story on the piece of bark we had found in an empty milk bottle had hit him hard.

I didn 't really know but something about the note had saddened him. Sara continued to read the note, "My plane crashed in the middle of the ocean though I 'm not sure which one.
