“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.”

Martha Stewart Blog Revisits Sanibel Shell Fair

I was excited to be mentioned in the Martha Stewart blog by my friend Hannah Milman. She has been a long time supporter of the Sanibel Shell Fair. The photos she captured of the beautiful shell work and shells at the 75th  annual shell fair are spectacular. Thank you Hannah for a great post!

P.S.  One of my favorite pictures in this blog is the Black Tahitian Shell and Pearl, gotta love those pearls.
