One of the kind of cool or neat things that we as guides get to experience and feel blessed at besides the wildlife, fishing, scalloping, driving the boat, or just being on the water, is one of the fringe benefits of always meeting genuinely nice people from all over the state, or nation.

Shauna (pictured bottom left) and crew are no exception. And they’re from some of my old stomping grounds of Lake County. Namely, Mount Dora, Eustis, Umatilla and Tavares areas known as the Golden Triangle of Florida because of their geographical locations.

A couple of things are for certain. One is you can’t hardly live in no more center of the state. And secondly, if you’ve ever flown over the area in a small 150 or 172, you’re sure to know why they named it Lake County. From Eustis it’s almost exactly the same whether you’re going to Daytona on the east side or Homosassa on the westside.

Well, repeat client Shauna and friends took home to the golden triangle some of the “white gold of the gulf” upon their visit. Way to go. Can’t wait until next time guys and gals.
