Catch 27 is one of St. Augustine’s premier seafood restaurants and I was given the opportunity to shoot some behind the scenes images and portraits for Historic Coast Culture. These folks are artisans with food and watching them in action was a true learning experience.
Even though I have lived in Florida almost my whole life, I’ve never explored it’s unique system of freshwater springs. Florida has the greatest assemblage of artesian springs in the world, with over 1,000 springs documented so far. Springs and spring runs are a unique class of ecosystems that are windows into the aquifer, which is the major source of our drinking water. Betsy and I have traveled to several already and have been amazed by their natural beauty and diversity of wildlife. We hope to visit more soon!
