“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.”

Shell Fair Artistic












Here are some photos from the artistic area of the Shell Fair. One of my favorites was the shell mirror made of all fossil shells. The work and time that go into these crafts is amazing. My hat is off to all of the artists. WOW!

Shells From Shell Fair













The second and third photos are from a client and friend, Nancy. She found this beautiful (rare) shell on one of our trips. I personally would give it a blue ribbon. Great find and great shell Nancy!  The rest of the shells come from all over the world. I liked the Albino Collection. Time to keep looking! You never know what is just over the far horizon.
