Yesterday, me and my best friend took the morning to adventure and take our rivaling camera’s out for a spin. After spending quite a bit of time in the local Starbucks, and taking photographs on the beach, we grabbed some awesome burritos from my favorite burrito joint “Dakine Diego’s.”
All throughout our lives, we’re warned to stay away and avoid talking to strangers. However, breaking that rule, I’ve decided to stop several people and ask them a few questions during my travels and everyday life.
A few days ago, I got the chance to chat with the ambitious Austin and Emily from St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. Sitting on Melbourne Beach, these two caught my eye while they were admiring the awesome scenery. After asking a couple of questions, I learned that both of them have started their own beachy businesses! “Beach Side Body Works,” a swanky yoga company, and “ALee Creations,” a rad surf and sailing company.
Turns out, in fact, they’d gone out surfing at 6am that morning! Whew!
Stopping for a few minutes to learn a little bit about someone is always great, and I can’t wait to share the rest of these “stranger’s” stories with you.
While the waters were freezing, diving through and around the spring’s rocky terrain was worth it. We even encountered an alligator! Okay, maybe he was only a foot long- but it counts!
