Full Moon Setting, Sun Rising

Full Moon Setting, Sun Rising

The only light on the water was the full moon setting. The seas were calm and the air had a hint of summer. I left Punta Rassa on a very low tide, my destination- Captiva Island.  What a wonderful ride.  I forget sometimes how nice it is to be on the water at sunrise. Charlie Robinson sang about” El Cerito Place” and the ocean singing, as I took photos of the sun rising over Sanibel Island. The moon was down and the sun was up as I  approached the shore of Captiva Island.  I look forward to the next full moon and the sunrise that follows.

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.
