In summer they lead visitors through historic creeks, bayside marshes and seaside barrier islands of Virginias Eastern Shore. In winter, they fly south to explore the mangrove paradise of the Florida Keys and Everglades. Bill is an ACA-certified coastal kayak instructor and has taught childrens kayak camps.
In researching the Florida Keys Paddling Atlas, they spent three years poking their bows into every mangrove creek and island along the 100-mile chain, Bill with a tape recorder and GPS, Mary with waterproof camera.
Next, they spent six months traveling the entire Florida coast researching Wild Florida Islands, paddling out to every island they could, from the Panhandle to the Space Coast.
In 2008, they conducted a 100-mile book tour by kayak, from Key Largo to Key West.
