Letter to the editor:
A huge thank you to Kenny, Shelly and Aaron - Islanders Rule!
Our party at Picnic Island over the weekend may not have been such a party if it weren't for good old Pine Island kindness. Just as we were within sight of our destination, the dreaded boat whistle blew and we found ourselves stranded.
No worries - along came Kenny and Shelly from Matlacha who offered to tow us in to Picnic Island. Perfect! As we enjoyed the day, in the back of our minds lingered the thought, "How the heck are we going to get back home?'
No worries - along came Aaron to offer a helping hand. Turns out, we were in very good hands, he's the owner of Gulfside Marine Service in Matlacha, right next to the bridge. He quickly fixed our fuel pump problem and our day at Picnic Island ended on a good note.
Thank you so much to Kenny and Shelly for towing us in and looking out for us. Thank you Aaron for your mechanic skills, you will definitely see us in the future for our marine service needs.
Gotta love our Pine Island community, it's the best place on earth!
"Pine Island Pam"
