well we are all settled with our dear friends, Vickie, Pat and their granddaughter Jordynne who is studying photography at college so you can see we both got on very well. After a good nights sleep we went down the road to Daytona beach, well not quite down the road but in American terms it was.
We drove along the beach, yes you heard right Vehicles still have access to the beach since motor racing trials were started in 1902. And closed to racing in 1958. Fifteen land speed world records were set on the sand.
Lovely sandy beach with Sea Oats grass holding the sand together helping to stop erosion.
The star of the show, these Egrets were so easy to photograph you could touch them almost with the lens.

At the end of the beach is a breakwater that splits fresh water, and fishing boats moor on the right to catch fish that are "shocked but the change in water and are easer to catch.
Pats car on the beach which may close to traffic in the future due to new hotels being built on the seafront and residents wanting a bit of beach for themselves.
Lastly a beach that out of season is so tranquil that even the birds don't mind humans.
Well time for a beer and a relax after a fantastic day with the Biggs family, Love, Mike and Sue.
