Beautiful Evening

Beautiful Evening

The evening weather was perfect for Pat and her daughter Jen. We collected many small shells. Baby ear shells, worm shells, olives, tusks, a rice shell, turbans, key hole limpets and a beautiful lace murex included in the collection. I look forward to exploring again in two weeks with Pat and her daughter.

I have been a Shelling Guide to Cayo Costa State Park since 1995. Many people know me as the Shelling Guide and Captain with Captiva Cruises over the past 20 years. In 2016 I began solely offering private small boat charters to the islands of Pine Island Sound including Cayo Costa State Park, Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, Pine Island and North Captiva. I am a certified Florida Master Naturalist, licensed USCG Captain, avocational photographer, seashell enthusiast and passionate about the history, people and culture of Southwest Florida, especially Cayo Costa. I volunteer as a member of Friends of Cayo Costa State Park and have great respect for the heritage of Cayo Costa. My goal is to provide guests with an overall experience and appreciation for the waters, islands, shells, plants, marine life, wildlife, history and people of this unique area of Southwest Florida.

    An excellent collection of both photos and treasures! Looks like the tide was pretty low. Hope we see that in October!

    Can't get over that osprey photo, and the driftwood – your eye for setting up the shots is amazing.
