Letter: Gabriola day trip ends well, despite loss of purse

Monday, August 26 2013

Dear Editor,

As a prairie visitor to your island this past Saturday, I would like to express my thanks to the person who found my shoulder bag and passed it along to the RCMP office. As well as money, credit cards, bank cards and my driver’s licence, my passport was also in the bag.

It was a great relief to have all returned intact within hours of reporting the loss. I would like the kind, honest person to know just how much I appreciate the return of my purse.

I would also like to thank the RCMP for their efforts on my behalf.

I certainly have a good tale about my day trip to Gabriola and of how wonderful the people are who live there.
