(WTVR) — Two Canadian sisters have a new pen pal after a message in a bottle floated over 4,000 miles over two years.

The sisters were on vacation in the Bahamas in 2010.
 That’s when they decided to drop a bottled message in the Atlantic.

The two forgot about the it until a fisherman from southern France mailed the letter back.

Now they use Skype to keep in touch. The sisters hope to travel to France on day to actually meet the Fisherman whose name is Pierre Marmajou.
