Meet The Author
We are Larry and Teresa Luber from Kingsport, TN. Teresa grew up near Bristol, VA and Larry in the St. Louis area. We both love to travel and Marco Island has become our favorite destination. Larry and I fell in love with Marco Island several years ago and we vacation here frequently. It is the one "magical" place where we can totally relax and each time we leave the island we want to come back. We are excited to share the Marco Island experience with you!
