Postcard :: Daytona Beach FL

Hi everyone!
On the drive back to Savannah we took a detour and stopped into Daytona Beach. Located on Florida's Atlantic coast, the beautiful Daytona has an endless stretch of coarse sand that is hard enough to drive on.
Upon close inspection the sand contained a high percentage of crushed and worn coquina shells that gives it an almost orange appearance. It was amazingly beautiful and feels so nice to walk on! 
In keeping with the beauty and vigor of the colorful sand I decided to wear my equally colorful dress to blend in with the astonishingly rich palette of this shoreline.
But after seeing my kids have so much fun in the water I had to change into my bathing suit to join them =)
