Around town

Life hasn't allowed me to get away on the camper as much as I would like, so I thought I'd share some of the natural beauty of the city I live within, and the place I've called home for the last 15 years.

The city of Fort Lauderdale is not only where I've built a career, and a life, but also a formidable place also known as "The Venice of America" partly due to it's over 300 miles of navigable in-land waterways.

The city also has almost 8 miles of coast line, and this makes for a miriad of choices as to where to spend the days, and what to do around town. Some of my favorite things to do around here are near or on the water, wether riding my beach cruiser bike to the beach, or paddle on a kayak, or stand up paddleboard, to occasionally body surf or surf.

In this particular blog all pictures where taken from a stand up paddle board, and as you can see it not only gives you an enjoyable work out, but it makes for a great picture taking platform.

This particular summer morning happened to be peferct for both, the waters were calm, the skies almost completely clear and plenty of marine life to see.

And not to leave out the beautiful architecture that lines our great beach, here are some views that I beleive if more people could enjoy, maybe everyone would be a little happier.

At the end of a long day, it's always nice to be able to enjoy living in such a beautiful place like this. If you ever have a chance to visit I highly recomend it!
