Ormond Beach

Spanish moss draping old oaks Sea bird sanctuaries with lookout platforms Storks, pelicans and seagulls cry for attention Hammerhead sharks cruise the Gulf Stream Hurricane vulnerable, small cottages Home to stock car races, bikers Antique auto enthusiasts Surfers line the east horizon Unpredictable waves Undertow, sand crabs and sea turtle eggs Let's leave our footprints In fine, white sand Collect angel-wing shells Listen to beach-side church bells When we visit Ormond Beach

    Sounds lovely my friend. It took me back to my youth growing up in Fla. Not too crazy about the sharks but the rest sounds wonderful. Loved it, God Bless, JB

    sounds so lovely Carolyn...on line one, did you mean Spanish moss? I saw it when I visited the Everglades - so lovely I thought - loved the texture and feel of it - could make a soft bed! and I have never seen sand so fine - like talc, except in Florida - that was on the Tampa visit. Best wishes, S :)
