“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.”

The Johnson Family without Melissa Continued









The Johnson trip continues... I took over 500 photos on this trip. The morning sky and light on the beach were inspiring. The shelling was exciting. We found a scotch bonnet, a large horse conch, an excellent alphabet cone, sand dollars and the largest piece of coral I have ever found on the beach. (It found a nice home on my back porch) After six hours of walking the beach we went once again to the delicious Tarpon Lodge.  The morning was beautiful and the afternoon even better. Thank you Brian and Nancy for another fun time shelling and exploring.
