Paige Tyree thought it was just another romantic evening on the beach at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park in Oyster Bay. Then boyfriend Porter Furman found a bottle with a message inside.
Furman, 38, of Oyster Bay, left his job early Friday to bury the bottle under a tree on the beach. When the couple arrived few hours later and spread out a blanket nearby, Furman surreptitiously discovered the artifact and handed it to Tyree, 31, a teacher in Huntington. Here's what happened next.
