Beyond BOW Kayak Scalloping Event 2011 – 2nd Annual

July 2011

Time to get on the water and collect some Sea Candy!
Scalloping is a once a year treat in the summertime for residents and tourists
alike. This is a very easy sport and kids of all ages come out to pick up and
hand harvest their own treats from the sea.

Each year we have the opportunity to introduce this activity
to more wonderful persons. This year’s group was just fantastic! With the help
of Good Time Kayaking we were able to furnish all those who needed with kayaks and scalloping gear. Each of the participants got a very generous gift bag from Flint Creek Outfitters and Not a Clue Adventures. Wonderful accommodations
were available this year with Shelter Cove Marina.

We had two days on the water and in between a past participant
Edyie Hollender and her husband Gene cooked up our group a wonderful Low
Country Boil consisting of shrimp, sausage, corn, potatoes, scallops and more!

As we went out later this year than before scallops were not
plentiful in the shallow waters we kayaked in but we all had a great time and
everyone looking forward to doing the event again next year! I love repeat

About notacluegal

Jeanene was born in Pittsburgh, PA. As a young child her family was very active in the outdoors. Things changed when her parents decided to travel down different paths in life and with that decision so went many of the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Being lucky to live in the suburbs Jeanene always had a backyard to play in and loved being outdoors. As the years passed she took every opportunity to be outdoors. She bought land in Tennessee and as a single mom moved her young daughter to the mountains. The were many life lessons learned on that mountain. There was no plumbing on the property – or even a house, but that did not stop her. She learned to live off of what was available and built her own cabin from the trees on her property. Those were rough years but the most rewarding. Now Jeanene resides in Tampa, Fl. and works as an office manager full time….but still yeans to be outdoors. Jeanene started “Not a Clue Adventures” to teach everyone she could how wonderful the outdoors are! That camping and fishing and hiking can be done by everyone and at many different levels. Single mom’s no longer have to be afraid to take their sons and daughters outdoors. By working with young couples, single parents and even seniors, she gets to teach others about her love for the outdoors and hopes to open their eyes to new adventures. In 2009, Jeanene completed certification as a Leave No Trace Instructor. She also works closely with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) and the Florida State Parks. Jeanene is also certified in First Aid/Adult CPR.
