We spent Betsy’s birthday (August 5) at Ormond Beach, Florida.  Betsy likes the beach almost as much as she likes the mountains, so since we were going to Florida to see her brother Ray, we decided to celebrate her birthday at the beach.

The photo above was taken from our room looking north along the beach.  We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful beach, which was very clean and had surprisingly few people on the beach.

After enjoying the view from our room, we went down to the beach to get some sun and to get wet in the Atlantic.  Here you can see Betsy getting ready for her time in the sun.

This final picture was taken on the beach looking south toward Daytona Beach.  I’ll have to admit that I really enjoyed Betsy’s birthday at this scenic spot.  I hope Betsy enjoyed it as well.

    Wonderful perspective at the beach… love the clouds…beautiful photos. The Pacific northwest has some fantastic waterfalls should you and Betsy venture this way.

    Ah, what a gorgeous and inviting beach! Up here in Maine the Atlantic isn’t anywhere near as warm as where you were! Even in the summer!
    Looks as if you two have wonderful times wherever you go.

    What a beautiful beach and how nice that it wasn’t filled with people. I would have loved to walk along the beach down by the water.

    What BEAUTIFUL beaches Florida has! I remember the stretches ‘drivable’ sand from my travels with my sister around the USA during the summer of 1966.
    Hugs and blessings,

    A really great blog here. Very nice photo’s. This area is my favorite in all of Florida. I usually stay in Ormond and drive to Flagler Beach to eat breakfast and fish off the city pier. You obviously had a great time. I hope you get to see all my Florida travel blogs. Good luck and all the best.
