“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.”

Mississippi Girls

 
 





Five adventurous "Mississippi Girls" went exploring with me to a couple of secret spots and a new spot. The shelling was good and the finds of the day were a huge winged oyster, a piece of a lion's paw, a piece of junonia, sand dollars, a large piece of coral and a beautiful sea whip. These ladies were a lot of fun and the weather was perfect. I look forward to our next outing.
P.S. Things are booking up for February and March  if you are thinking of going out in those months you may want to plan ahead.
