We visited my son and his wife for the first time last week as he is finishing up his studies at Embry Riddle in Daytona Beach and I had not had a chance to see their place since their marriage last year and during his time at university. So we grabbed a couple of days and enjoyed some great weather and had a wonderful meal and a very delicious bottle of Rosenblum Zinfandelat the Stonewood Grill & Tavern. Food was delicious, we held off appetizers all preferring to indulge our sweet tooth at the end of their meal, and we headed into ordering a Zinfandel expecting to pick a steak for dinner, when my daughter in law Meg who is an excellent cook mentioned we were having steak and Guinness pie the evening after. Plan blown we ordered different fish. I had Grouper, Trudy had Mahi-mahi and Je...

Sea Turtle Nesting Season begins in Ormond By The Sea, Florida  East Central Florida including Ormond By The Sea, Daytona Beach and all of Volusia County are under lighting restrictions form May 1 to October 31 each year.  The restrictions are designed to protect several species of endangered and threatened sea turtles that come ashore to lay their eggs.  Balcony, porch and other lights that could potentially be seen from the beach must be turned off or shielded. Hatchlings head to the ocean when they emerge from their nest and could be confused by lights coming from the opposite direction.  For more information about lighting visit the Volusia county web site http://volusia.org/environmental/natural_resources/seaturtles/lighting.htm
