Community of Matlacha
The first thing you notice when you travel to Greater Pine Island is Matlacha (pronounced Mat-luh-shay), a hodgepodge of the different. Your eyes will notice the great expanse of water, which backs up to almost every home and business. Each home and business is something different reflecting the personality and/or idiosyncrasies of the resident within or business owner. One likes bright colors and "pizzazz", the other likes the more subdued. Here you will find houses, bars, art galleries, a post office, restaurants, a pet grooming service, gift shops, marinas, bait shops, a convenience store, motels, a small condominium, all sitting one next to the other in harmony. One house is large, one is a cottage, there's a trailer, this one has dolls and giant stuffed animals on display, not to sell, but to show you. There is an old Indian statue sitting on a chair on the street wishing you a Happy 4th of July or a Happy whatever, depending on the season.
