When I get company to my Florida home, I sometimes take them to a remote island restaurant accessible only by the boat.
To tell the truth, the restaurant's food is only OK, nothing to write home about. But the boat trip is fun.
For years, the same guy operated the water taxi that ferries people from landside to the island. I got to know him well and thought he was good at his job.
Once, he saved my dignity and perhaps even my life. You see, once the last water taxi leaves the restaurant dock, there is no way to get off the island.
