Quaintly Seeing the Light

Quaintly Seeing the Light

A quaint little drinking village with a fishing problem

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Saint James City is a tiny village at the tip of Pine Island in Southwest Florida and just a short boat ride to the Gulf of Mexico. It is a state of mind as much as an actual place. A little bit of old Florida and where I call home. Fishing and boating are a way of life here.

There are no traffic lights on our island, just one four-way stop, and probably as many boats as cars. We have a lot of marinas that sell bait and tackle. At the local Winn-Dixie, the beer cooler is bigger than the one for milk..

After dark, the neon signs “glow” about what is important here and which pretty much sums things up:

“A quaint little drinking village with a fishing problem.”
