Flagler Beach, Florida
We’ve been busy exploring the area. On Saturday we headed south to Daytona.
Some parts of Daytona Beach reminded me of the old beach movies of the 60’s. There was even a carnival on the beach. It was kind of an interesting town. We normally don’t like beach tourist towns, but this one was kind of different. We may go back and walk around a little.
Lots of little shops for the bikers during bike week. It gets pretty crazy here during bike week. It’s sometime the end of February or early March, I think.
Daytona is one of the few beaches where you can actually drive your car right on the beach. They charge $5 a vehicle. We didn’t drive on the beach on Saturday…it was just too crowded. It might be a fun thing to do one day.
We drove right by the Daytona speedway. There were a lot of Rv’s in the parking lot. I think it was some kind of rv show, but we didn’t stop.
We visited Tomoka State Park in Ormand Beach. It was a nice park, but not big rig friendly. The largest rig they can handle is 34 feet.
The campground road was a bit windy and narrow.
It was pretty full.
Lots of privacy between sites, but they were just too small for a big rig.
There was a nice paddling trail for kayaks and canoes.
The main campground road was very pretty.
There was some ruins from an old sugar mill.
The weather a little cloudy but I don’t think we ever actually got any rain. It was nice and cool, so we enjoyed it. It was a long summer.
We stopped at Bulow Creek State Park and took some pictures of the Fairfield Oak. It was quite a beautiful tree…thought to be between 300-500 years old.
Al is standing under the tree. Can you see him?
