“Captain Brian Holaway is well versed in the intricacies of our unmatched locale. He can guide to and through a multitude of out-of-the way tidal creeks, bayous, keys and islands. More important is his passionate interest and respect for the region. With unique insights from his many explorations and his studies, not only does he identify the birds and wildlife that inhabit our semi-tropical watery land, but he explains their interconnectedness to their environment and each other. In addition, he shares the fascinating history of rugged people who came long before us: Florida Native Indians, the Calusa, the Spanish, the Cubans, early homesteaders, and the wisdom evident in the growth of their culture.

You will come away with great enjoyment and a new understanding of this beautiful place and its history.”

More from the 74th Annual Sanibel Shell Fair













I thought I would post more photos from the Sanibel Shell Fair. Some of the top shell artists in the world were there this week. One of the best shell artists, Sandy Moran, known  for her sailor valentines was there as well. The pocket watches are a favorite of mine. I hope you enjoy the photos. Next year I plan on entering an Alphabet Cone I found on a remote beach in the Florida Everglades.
