“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.”
Two avid shellers from the great state of Nebraska (now living in Louisville) traveled with me to secret spot number two. Gary started finding fighting conchs that were in excellent condition. Kris likes lightning whelks and she found some beautiful ones. Kris also found a very large rice shell. (Nice find Kris) The gems of the day were two crested tellins. We also found babies ears and tusks. Both Gary and Kris have good shelling eyes. Gary emailed me later to tell me he found two more crested tellins where he was staying on Sanibel. It was a day of great finds! Thanks for a fun day of shelling!
