After the workout we received our first three days in the field we considered two days of lying around being lazy a much deserved break. Then we got off our duffs and did what any respectable Floridian would do. We went to the BEACH!
Ah… the Intercoastal Waterway. Just a few more miles and we are there…
Oh, yes… toes in the sand and sea.
We have arrived!
Ormond Beach is a great location in this area. It is close enough to Daytona to still participate in the driving / parking on the beach experience.
And yet, if you go to the end of that section, you find these…
No vehicles of any kind allowed. Woot!
For the record, we did not drive Annie on the beach. She’s not fond of swimming. So we paid a group of really nice palm trees a few bucks to watch her for the day.
She looks happy enough for her second trip ever to Florida.
It was a beautiful fall day with a cool breeze off the water. A variety of shore and other birds entertained us and we watched a couple of dolphins play just off shore.
No trip to the shore is complete though without some good old fashioned sea shell collecting. And there, glimmering just offshore, was a starfish. What? Starfish don’t glimmer, you say. Well, this one was a real diamond in the rough.
Have a shimmering day!
