My niece & I just returned yesterday….enjoyed many gardens on our walks.

The gardens are stunning, never saw gardens that were so manicured and thriving♥️

They certainly do a great job

We tourists get off the ferry & into our “Shangri-La” & forget that this is a hard working community that goes to work everyday. Thank you!

2 weeks! 😍

👍

Next week!! 😍

Indeed!

Very nice

And they do an amazing job!

Beautiful!

Great Lakes air did a FANTASTIC job of flying the UPS here this past winter!😎👍✌🐴 Sara C./UPS mac Island

So appreciate your great service! Thank you!!

Reminder: these folks have been there through thick and thin, whenever they are most needed, for many years. No Johnny-come-lately, trying to jump in and cash in, and disappear when the going gets tough

You were amazing, friendly, and accommodating, as usual!

THANKS !!!!

Thanks
