21 Dec Captain Mike Fuery and Captain Brian Travel To Cayo Costa Island
Captain Mike Fuery and I traveled in my boat to a place we both have shelled for many years, Cayo Costa. This trip was to attend the placing of a plaque for the original “Shell Lady of Cayo Costa Island”, Carol Sellars. Carol lived on the island for decades and would shell almost every day. A small group of people attended this special event. Everyone present placed a shell next to Carol’s plaque and stories were shared. It was a special day on the island. I enjoyed talking with Mike and listening to him on our trip to and from the island. We talked about shells, boats, secret spots, clients, cigars and shelling. Captain Mike Fuery and Carol Sellars are two people that I hold in high regards when it comes to Cayo Costa and shelling.

What a cool memorial.
On a side note – Capt. Brian in long pants! Don't see that often. 🙂

Shelllady, Capt. Mike Fuery after three decades has retired. He may come out with another shell book. If he does I will be the first to let you know.
