Last Light And Bonus Pictures

Charlie Robinson was singing about pioneer town people and footprints in the sand as the sun fell into 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.

    We're back home in TX but our hearts are still there! I love the reference to Charlie Robinson! (Check your mail soon!) Our favorite part of being in Sanibel/Captiva was the day spent with you AND eating at Doc Ford's – three times after your suggestion!! Thank you so much for a wonderful trip & we look forward to staying in touch! Here are a few lyrics by Emily Robinson from the Courtyard Hounds (formerly Dixie Chicks):

    I'm gonna head down to the coast
    Where nothin' ever seems to matter
    You know I love it there the most
    When every piece of my world gets scattered

    Blue skies, green water
    White birds in the air
    Brown skin, blue collar
    And the wind blowin' in my hair

    Charlotte, Thank you for the nice words. It was a great day at Cayo on the beach.I love the lyrics by Emily, it makes me think of my favorite spot far into the ten thousand islands in the everglades. I hope to get there soon.
