Along the very south end of Daytona Beach (Daytona Beach Shores and Ponce Inlet) you can find some lovely homes sitting atop the dunes – barrier dunes protecting the shoreline and the turtle nests.  Some think the houses intrude on the natural land and seascape – they may, but I guess we get used to what we see.

Our toys are kept close to the dunes so they don’t get caught in the surf and end out at sea, riderless.  The lighthouse is right in back of me.

This is one of my shots from August 8, 2008 (08-08-08) – a grand summer day in Florida.

Along with some needed chores around the house, hopefully will get to Savannah – Tybee Island and then Anna Maria Island.

Sand roses

I call these sand roses although I’m sure someone has their official horticulturally correct name.  They grow in the beach sand all along the east coast of Florida.

These are a few photos that I took at the beach last year – August – at Ponce Inlet near Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach.

I love this photo of my son and his children – I swiped it from his Facebook page – photo credit to BK.  He’s a great Dad and the #1 really signifies his rank.

We have always been a “beach” kind of family – love the sea and the sand and warm sun on our faces.  I grew up on the New England coast and spent many days at the beach in Connecticut and in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  My son’s wife is from a Massachusetts beach town and, so I hear, grew up with lobster sandwiches in her lunch box.

To all the Dad’s out there – Happy Father’s Day!
