Toy Boat at Sea
A toy boat launched in the Atlantic Ocean by South Carolina school students has reached the coast of Wales, after a stopover in Bermuda. The Royal Gazette reports that the Carolina Dreamer was built by the St. Andrew’s School of Math & Science in Charleston and fitted with a GPS tracker. The little vessel went to sea last May and washed up a week later in Bermuda, where a local sailor relaunched it toward England. Eventually a family walking along a beach in Wales discovered the battered vessel. Local students hope to refurbish the Carolina Dreamer and send her back home across the Atlantic.
