“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.”

Shelling on a Beautiful Day with Mary Ann and Michelle













It was one of those days where the shelling was great! (First cold front) The Sanibel sisters would have had a field day (or should I say a tweezer day). Nancy from Minnesota would have been delighted to see so many sharks eyes (don't worry there are plenty for you as usual) it was just a great day for shelling.  Mary Ann and Michelle were most happy by the finds they discovered. I was amazed at the shells that poured in and how the beach contours had changed with the winds .The trip was most enjoyable. We all enjoyed viewing frigate birds ,white pelicans, osprey, an immature  bald eagle and the sounds of being on the water. Thanks for a Great trip!
