Year Purchased: 2009
Why the Owner Chose Pineland: Pine Island is a place to rejuvinate, relax and get clean fresh air - we took a visit to Pine Island in April 2009 and it seemed as though we'd stepped into another realm. Pine Island reminds me on how things should be, before all the pollution, stripping away of forests and lakes - the skies are filled with all kinds of birds and nature is just so busy around you - you do actually take note! It really does take you a few days to get the cities and towns out of your system and reconnect with the true essence of aliveness.
