Last night Stacy and Mark McLeod threw a fantastic party in honor of my 13th 29th birthday and, way more importantly, to celebrate Yellowdog. McLeod came up with the motto above and I think it just might stick.
Stacy gave me a few coastal magazines, a standup paddle board magazine and a beautiful book on beach cottages. To our collective amazement, the March edition of Coastal Living magazine has a great article on west coast Florida islands - and the first one in the article is Matlacha! Rock on! Also mentioned were Boca Grande/Gasparilla and Cabbage Key, our new next door neighbors.
I tried to find the article online but they must not have the current issue online until it's off of the newstands. But I did find a few old articles - to see go here and here.
Here is a picture of downtown Matlacha from the article.
