Weedon Island

Weedon Island

My life has been infused with tons of adventure and nature from living so close to the Tampa Bay. For as long as I can remember, my parents would take my younger brother and I out to the Weedon Island Preserve that has been around for thousands of years, in order to experience aquatic and onshore ecosystems. Many people walk the trails, boardwalks, and fishing pier to learn more about this fascinating preserve. It never ceased to amaze me how the city of Tampa would protect the wide range of diverse animals and natural resources located in this area. As a family we would take jet skis out along the banks of the island or paddle board through them to experience close encounters with numerous wild life.

Several years have gone by and I still constantly come to this place spending great weekends with friends that love adventure as much as me. The fishing is incredible throughout the protected mangroves. There is an abundance of fish, the most popular ones in this area tend to be Snook, Red, and Trout. It is so peaceful outdoors on the water, with the Florida sun giving off a strong heat. My Ranch Bucket gives me the perfect shade whenever I am on the boat or at the beach with my friends. Not only does it look great, but the fit feels perfect especially with any type of movement. The only problem was that all my guy friends were stealing it from me saying how good they looked in it…told them to get their own!

That same day we caught about six Trout and four nice sized Snooks. Both fish are great to eat but we decided to let them go back to their aquatic ecosystems to live another day (I feel guilty sometimes because I love animals so much). The sport of fishing has really become a hobby of mine, because of the exhilarating game that is combined with patience and fight on the water. Weedon Island Preserve gives this feeling to those who love to fish, which is why the location gives off a strong attraction. I wish everyone could see this beautiful environment to remind them the damages of air and water pollution.

I cannot wait to come back during my spring break and spend all my time on the water. Now I am back at University of Central Florida located in Orlando, so it is time for me to explore this busy city. So keep up to date with me!

New year, same world so take care of it!

About Our Product

About Our Product

Fall brings my favorite type of hat weather, especially wearing our Belize Orange Trucker and the South Water Key Brown Hemp Snapback. Even though these hats are undeniably cute and work well with all of my fall attire, there are many more reasons I am a big advocate for our hats. I wanted to share a little more about our hats since I am finding many of you who keep up with me and the blog have a lot of questions and do not know nearly enough about our brand. For starters our hats are all organic. We re-purpose our hats out of all recycled material. I am a huge supporter of all things environmental friendly and the mission to save our planet, and our hats really embody this. One of my biggest things when I look into new products for myself is how it effects our environment and specifically the effect it has on animals. The next great thing about our hats is the personality the company brings to it. The photography on the hats is taken by our brands creator and it really adds a special flair to the hats. Lastly, and I think this one is key for you, our customer, they can be personalized! If you ever want something specific out of a hat, send me a personal message and we will work with you to create exactly what you want and expect out of a hat!

Short and sweet for today, but wanted to field through some of the questions I have been receiving. If y’all have more inquiries please do not hesitate to comment below or message me privately!
