Immerse in an ECO-Tour and Experience Southwest Florida Islands by Boat

“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.”

A Good Day for Worm Shells

The tide was super high a 2.1. I grabbed my camera and set out to take pictures of the beautiful sea oats on Cayo Costa. After walking a few steps I noticed a worm shell, then another, and another. Three hours later with no pictures of the sea oats, I realized I missed my opportunity of the early morning light on the sea oats. However, I found many great worm shells.  The worm shells I collected in three hours are probably half of what I collected in all of last year. You never know what a day of photography can bring, this day it brought worm shells.

They are also still long & not too broken. Remember the chat we had about sea turtles & hurricanes. The Florida Beacherhunter sent me this link:
It seems they won't just run with folklore - they actually want some scientific evidence :D
