Fishing Near Siesta Key.

Today I spent the entire day in the Gulf of Mexico on a small fishing boat.  My buddy Steve is an avid fisherman and has a small 17 foot skiff.  We launched his boat in North Bradenton and went South to just below Siesta Key.  The day was perfect for a boat ride, sunny and in the mid-60s with almost no waves.  Not many fish were biting but we still managed to catch a few Snook and Redfish.  Along the way we saw numerous pods of porpoises, osprey, and manta-rays.  All in all a great day on the bay!

I am an adventure-loving American man, with a severe case of wander-lust and a desire to experience as much of this wonderful world as humanly possible. Every place I have visited or lived has taught me something about life and helped me grow. For me, traveling opens my eyes to how similar the human race is, yet at the same time, how unique we all are. I hope this blog will motivate you to put down the TV remote, dust off your backpack and decide to take a chance on an adventure. It can be a walk in a new neighborhood 2 miles from home or a trip to a far off distant land. I have lived in or visited over 50 countries during my life and hope to see many more. I want to share my experiences. I hope you enjoy the blog. -WAND3R3R, Somewhere on the Globe, 2014.
