You're on vacation so time doesn’t matter, but you’re glad you set the coffee maker the night before. You wake to the smell of coffee, which causes you to rise, electing to grab a cup and move to the balcony. Sitting there you marvel at the incredible colors as the sun appears to climb up out of the beautiful blue waters into the sky.
Rested and fully awake now you elect to take a run on the beach for a great workout. Stepping on the beach you notice the crowd fishing off the end of the Sunglow Pier which you saw at sunrise from the balcony. Turning north for your run you’re enjoying this uniquely packed sand and remember those stories of the Daytona 500 races on the beach in the 50’s. After running 2 miles you see “The Shores” a five star spa treatment that you plan to enjoy during your stay. Reversing your course you arrive back home in time to see Mike setting up his hot dog stand; you make a mental note to see him soon.
Now the big decision of the day, do I take a beach chair and take advantage of the shade beneath the pier with the waves crashing at my feet, or simply head to the pool and enjoy the spa while stretching out on the supplied lounge chairs. Whatever you decide make sure you take money for a Hot Dog and a Coke.
After a nice shower it’s time to think about dinner, you have 12 seafood restaurants within 4 miles most on the inter-coastal waterway and a short walk. You decide on a 6 mile ride to the Lighthouse Café at Ponce Inlet, home to the second tallest Lighthouse in the nation; remember to plan a day to walk all 197 steps to the top one day. My favorite menu item is fish and foil with a Corona while looking out over the water and a setting sun. Returning back home to the condo, relaxing on leather couch and confee chairs, you now have a choice, do we head to Publix 2 miles away and rent a Blockbuster movie for $1 to be viewed on the wall mounted flat screen with a built-in DVD player or take a quiet walk on the beach. You decide on a walk tonight and vow to pick up a movie on your way to dinner tomorrow. Exhausted, now heading to bed, you stop and program the coffee maker to start it all over again tomorrow.

Raised north of Philadelphia I went to school in Daytona and never left central Florida and the beach. What I love about Florida is the sun; it’s the most motivating force in the universe. I like to run, fish, play tennis and golf, bicycling, riding a motorcycle, visiting all the local Tiki Huts and to just sit on the beach with a good book. Call me, I’d love to help you plan your trip.
I love the Daytona Beach Shores area, it's like visiting the Keys without the drive.
