I enjoyed a day on the water with the Roeder family. We traveled to a remote location on Cayo Costa to explore the beach. We observed turtle nests and found many great finds. Mike gathered his first baby’s ear shell (I just love it when that happens) and his wife found a nice Florida cone. One of the girls found an absolutely beautiful common nutmeg shell which was probably one of the best nutmegs I have ever held in my hand. Great find! Time seemed to fly by on the beach. I pulled the anchor and we motored back towards Captiva. This is when the wildlife show started. We saw a loggerhead turtle and then a 4 foot hammerhead shark. The water was so clear we just slowly putted along watching stingrays glide past the boat and a couple of manatee. I noticed a dolphin close to the marina in shallow water playing with a fish. I eased the boat closer but still kept a good distance from the dolphin when I noticed another fin behind the dolphin. It was a shark! If you look close in the photos you can see the shark behind the dolphin. The shark’s fin is more triangular. The shark let us get a good look at him/her before it splashed some water by the boat and took off. It was a wonderful day on the water observing wildlife and collecting seashells with a great family.
