Shelling And Sunset

Shelling And Sunset

I love May. May sunsets are my favorite. Sharing time on the water with Helen, Dave, Kay, and Jerry was a pleasure. It was there first time to the out islands. ( They got spoiled with the beautiful May weather) We all enjoyed the shell collecting and observing all things wild. Jerry was the “sleeper sheller” who found sun ray venus and…. a baby’s ear shell. Dave found many cool cockles that he balanced on his arm. (I like that) Helen and Kay both had smiles on there faces the whole time. The sunset was inspiring. The dolphin seemed to like the May weather as well. Thanks for all the great questions and conversations it  was a great trip.

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.
