Landscape With Edna

Landscape With Edna

Cross Canadian Ragweed  was singing, “On your own” When I took this shot, But it was Edna St. Vincent Millay, I kept thinking about, “My candle burns at both ends: It will not last the night; But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends-It gives a lovely light.” You gotta love Edna.

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.

    I'm not familiar with either Cross Canadian or Edna – going to go look them up.

    Kim, Edna used to stay on Sanibel. Some of her writings were lost in a fire while she was on Sanibel. She was a lady ahead of her time.
