Bottle in the Water
The gondolier kept it hidden on the back of the boat until the perfect time to place it in the water.
The gentleman did his best to pretend he didn't know what was going on (even though he had personally written the note that was wrapped inside).
The lady was surprised to receive her very own "message in a bottle".
The diamond ring may have come out of the gentleman's pocket,
but it seemed to materialize out of thin air.
The lady gasped at the question he asked, nodded her head,
and then answered when she could catch her breath.
Her answer, of course, was "yes".
A year later they both said "yes", this time in front of a minister.
They lived happily ever after, and every time they heard that song by the Police, their thoughts went back to their very own "message in a bottle", and the voyage that started it all.
The above photo was part of a series of images that can be seen in the post "Hanging It Over the Side".
