The trip started by traveling over to the Tarpon Lodge for lunch. Well, we got sidetracked because the water was sooooo clear. We walked this beautiful flat where Joe found this large whelk. Patty found many sunray venus' still together. Then it was off to the tarpon lodge for great conversations and food. After lunch we walked the Precolumbian shell mounds at the Randell Research Center. Then it was off to Cayo for some bike riding and visiting the pioneer cemetery. Our final stop was secret spot number... We walked the beach empty of people looking for shells. Joe found this amazing crested tellin TOGETHER! Great find. Patty and Joe packed a lot in on this trip. I enjoyed showing them new places and look forward to our next adventure.

“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.”
