Instameeting

Instagram is the place to meet people these days.

I realize this is probably old news to many of you, but still worth mentioning because I have met some of THE most incredible people I wouldn’t know otherwise!

So, lemme tell you about last Sunday afternoon. I jumped at the chance to meet up with two local Instagram gals (@brittwilltravel & @beachdaywithsam) at nearby Beer Can Island. And, by meet up, I mean for the first time. We all share an affinity for adventure AND the beach, so this spot at the tip of Longboat Key was the ideal place to meet.

And guys, the three of us just clicked. Instant, Insta-friends. By the end of the day, we were already planning our next adventure!

But wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. Here’s a look at our afternoon on Beer Can. We explored the shoreline, tried our hand at tightrope walking, and even took turns on a rope swing hanging over the Gulf! As one who frequents the beach solo, it was such a treat to share the day with these two adventure girls and their hearts of gold!

This guy made tight rope walking look easy. I couldn’t even get up there!

We’d planned to stay for sunset, but fast-moving thunder clouds had us packing up early. Back at the pier – and much closer to our cars – we had time to snap photos of the storm.

And that’s where we ran into another Instagrammer, (and drone master) @kevingiese! Perfect timing! After talking with Kevin, we confirmed plans to all meet up again soon for an adventure that we’re keeping a surprise for now. Stay tuned!

Seriously. How did we make friends before Instagram??? I met three truly special people that day, all thanks to Insta!


How ’bout you? Has Instagram led you to meet any exceptional people?
