“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.”

Exploring With Ursla And John









I enjoyed the company of Ursula and John as we traveled to one of my secret spots. The shell  collecting was fun with Ursula. We walked and talked about shells found and shells we want to find. The walk was most enjoyable. So much I lost track of time and we had to walk quickly back to the boat. John was more of a walker than a sheller. He enjoyed just walking barefoot on the beach(go John).  We all enjoyed observing the flowering plants. The beautiful sea grape, the nicker bean getting ready to drop it's seed pod (my favorite), the prickly pear, and wild lantana.  I look forward to our next walking and talking adventure.
