18 Oct Matt And Sara
It was a great morning and half the afternoon with Matt and Sara from the great state of Nebraska. They were first time customers but long time shellers. Matt has been coming to the islands since he was a little boy. He knows his shells and also enjoys the wildlife. Sara has picked up on the shelling and is a very determined sheller. She got into her “shelling zone” and Matt and I let her stay there. She wanted to find an angel wing, and on the walk back pulled one out of an old high tide line. Matt and I managed to obtain a extremely cool stingray barb, the colors on it were unlike any I have ever found. We also found a few fossilized sharks teeth and pieces of teeth. (I think its time to go north and see my friend Karen and find more sharks teeth) We pulled the anchor and set off for the Tarpon Lodge. Shortly after pulling the anchor we saw many dolphin. I noticed a new born dolphin that could not of been over 48 hours old. What an amazing sight in the wild.You never know what nature will throw your way. After viewing the mother dolphin and baby from a safe distance we continued over to the Tarpon Lodge. Matt and Sara loved the food and atmosphere at the Tarpon Lodge. I enjoyed the conversations at lunch as much as the food. On the trip back to Captiva we made a surprise stop at Capt. Brian’s secret spot “no number”. Sara doesn’t like surprises but she liked this spot. Thank you Matt and Sara for a wonderful day on the water and for being troopers at Secret spot “no number”.
