Gift From The Sea

Gift From The Sea

What a day! Today I had two shelling trips. I scheduled the trips so I could jump off my boat and run down to Sanibel to go to a book signing between trips. Reeve Lindbergh, the daughter of Ann Morrow Lindbergh, was signing the book called  “Against Wind and Tide” a collection of letters and journals of her mother’s. Reeve also signed a copy of the 50 year edition of “Gift By The Sea”. It was a great day. I will always treasure this gift by the sea.

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.

    That is too cool! I too have the book. It is so cool to get to see the authors of these great books we love so much!

    Ive been to a few book signings on Sanibel when visiting. I like the hour long lectures that usually go along with the signing!

    Congrats Brian on your double signing!! You timed it perfectly. What a wonderful day!!!
