Research, Writing And Woods

Research, Writing And Woods

Howdy folks. Lately I have been out in the woods looking at plants and then back to my desk writing. I am anxious to write some articles on plants. This project has been educational for me. Going over my notes and different field guides from the last twenty years has made the task rewarding and intriguing. I look forward to more research, writing and of course getting out in the woods.

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.

    How exciting…expanding your Master Naturalist reach into writing articles. Is your focus in and around the beauty of Lee County? Or are you also researching and writing about other surrounding areas, too, like the 10,000 islands / Everglades? Without a doubt, many of us will be waiting to know when your articles start getting published.

    Love all the books sprawled all over your desk. That's exactly how mine looks while I'm researching things I've photographed out in the wild – except my desk is significantly smaller. I now have desk envy 😉 LOL Can't wait to read what you've written.
