 As we were leaving, I was captured by a pirate!  Thankfully, only a photo was required for the ransom.  The pirate, also known as Mike Quinn, is a resident of Fort Myers Beach and a popular subject of photographs. The location of his hideout and his hidden treasure are unknown but, I have no desire to search for it.  I was quite scared to death and happy to be returned to my pocket in Shirley’s purse!
