KEY LARGO, Fla. - During the summer of 2015 Rosemarie took her daughters and grandchildren kayaking at John Pennekamp State Park. After her visit she sent Assistant Park Manager Cassandra Meadows a thank you card and a picture to remember their trip.
“Dear Ms. Meadows,
Special thanks to you and your staff for making our kayaking experience at the park a highlight of our summer holiday. Anyone thinking Disney world is the only handicap friendly vacation spot in FL obviously has not been to John Pennekamp. They need to experience your excellent and caring staff which enables us to enjoy our activities together though differently. We were looked after and watched out for at every turn. My grandchildren, Megan, Sydney and Robby found kayaking fun, challenging and at times frustrating. However, my Jared found kayaking through the mangroves with his guide, Dave, to be a totally “Zen” experience.
