I'm Frank Papy and I've got a few stories to tell - so pour yourself a glass of your favorite cold drink and stay awhile. We're on island time here, so make yourself at home!

This website is one way that I share my time on my research vessel Skybird with others. I've been writing about the Florida Keys and the Bahamas for over 20 years, and everyday I learn something new. It's my pleasure to share it with you!
