Just an hour in Daytona!

You are forgiven for thinking that someone who has just flown through Daytona are hardly qualified to blog a post about about this coastal stop off but as a geographer I have to comment on the two tone sands of Daytona.

Up until my visit I had only known Daytona as the place where cars race along the beach and certainly I saw evidence of areas where this happens albeit I didn’t spy any soft tops racing. It was stop off on a road trip between St Augustine and Clermont and we were lucky enough to find parking close to the pier.

The sand here is beautiful, honey AND terracotta coloured and made for some interesting patterns where water met beach. I haven’t seen a beach like it before………………
