Time On The Island

Time On The Island

Time lately has been going at a rapid pace. Many coals are in the fire. New projects are in the works. One project has to do with photography. Another project is south of here on an island that rhymes with tuba. I keep thinking of the quote by  Edna St. Vincent Millay  (Who was a early visitor to Sanibel)
My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends-
It gives a lovely light!

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.

    I've missed your posts! They help me get through the winter. Hope the book is coming together well. And the island of "Tuba" has some amazing shells, from what I've seen on "I Love Shelling"!!
