If you are tired of taking I-95 going north to Palm Coast, try Beach Street instead. After a mile of driving along the Intracoastal lined with magnificent riverfront mansions, you veer west and find yourself in a tree line road with branches arching above the roadway, which put you in a shade in the middle of summer heat. It is only 40 MPH speed limit, but it does not bother you. You would not want to drive faster anyway, you may want to drive slower and enjoy the scenery. But what is it on your right hand? Let's stop here and check it out. Heck with Palm Coast, we'll get there next time. This is Tomoka State Park, right here north of Ormond Beach. This is a large park - over 2,000 acres. The park boasts 12 miles of shoreline. The activities include Boating, Canoeing, fishing, picnickin...

The Trails is an established subdivision in Ormond Beach. North of Grananda Ave (Rt.40), it is accessible from both Granada Ave and from the main entrance on Nova Road right pass the Trails Shopping Center. Besides The Trails, there is also Trails North Forty to the West and Trails South Forty south of Granada. The Trails were built starting from late 70. The development was very sensitive to the existing trees, and this makes it beautiful with all those mature trees and lush vegetation.

Do you want to wake up every morning and be able to enjoy this, or maybe just a stroll on the beach? How about having your morning coffee on your balcony overlooking this view. Ormond Beach is a great place to live! Watch the sunrise over the Atlantic, and the sunset from one of many river front docks overlooking the Halifax River, part of the Inter Coastal waterway.       I think that this is one of the nicest areas, most beautiful areas in Florida. We are still a small town, but only a short drive to Daytona, and about an hour or so to Orlando and the Mouse house. We have the best of both worlds. We live in an area where you get to know your neighbors, and enjoy a peaceful traffic free beach. But if you enjoy the night life and attractions you can go for the day and then come home to...

I have been trying to get out of doing this. I was tagged by Midori Miller and she keeps asking if I did my Super 8 MEME, so here it is... 1. Who is your favorite musical artist (post a YouTube Video): This is really a hard one for me. It really depends on the day and the mood. I have to say that I love the classics; The Beatles, Elton John, Pink Floyd, etc... but then I may feel a little mellow like James Taylor, Norah Jones, Sarah McLachlin but then I may feel more like the blues with ALO, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan or maybe even a little poppy with Jon McLaughlin, The Goo Goo Dolls, Sister Hazel, One Republic, Colbie Caillat. Obviously I am confused here. My favorite right now has to be John Mayer. 2. Who is your favorite artist? (Post a Flickr photo) I would have to say Salvad...
