daytona beach shores: Daytona Beach Shores. Where I Live And Where I Work... - 06/19/14 10:18 PM
Daytona Beach Shores is a small coastal city south of Daytona Beach. It was incorporated in 1963, while Daytona Beach and Ormond are much older, so how they managed to get such a long shoreline, I do not know. But they do.
And because of that, this is our local condo capital, as majority of condos on the beachside are in Daytona Beach Shores. This is where I live, this is where I work.

Still, it is small, a little more than 4K residents, swelling to 30K visitors during major events. No schools, but not many kids in these condos. … (2 comments)

daytona beach shores: Morning on the Beach in Daytona Beach Shores - 05/12/13 12:46 PM
I usually take my long walks on the beach in the evening, when the sun is low, and UV exposure is at a minimum. But today I went to the beach at 9 in the morning, as in the evening we are eating out with the family celebrating Mother’s Day.
The park in Daytona Beach Shores where I go was still not packed, and I had no problem parking the car.
The weather is what you can dream of: low 80s, slight ocean breeze, light clouds covering the sun to give rest to our skin…

As I was making my … (8 comments)

daytona beach shores: Sunday morning in Daytona Beach Shores. - 09/16/12 03:30 PM
We are on our routine Sunday morning walk on the beach. There is a guy standing with the phone. The white Beach Patrol truck stops, the officer gets out, bends down and picks up a… tiny baby turtle, and puts the turtle to the bucket and goes back to the truck. A girl asked the officer where he was taking the turtle, and he said that he was taking the baby turtle to Marine rehabilitation center in Ponce Inlet. Wow, we were a few steps away and did not even notice the turtle. We looked around and saw a nest maybe … (12 comments)

daytona beach shores: Daytona Beach Shores. Summer And The Beach. - 08/20/12 12:08 AM
It is August, the hottest month in Daytona. Not that July is any cooler, and not that coming September is going to be any cooler, at least until the 30th of September… And no, I am not complaining. Looks like the majority of the country has or had much hotter time…  
Surprisingly, we experience what the lifeguard called “upwelling” and the water on Sunday was only 76F, cooler than what we had in May. By tis time we should be firmly in the 80s, but it is the Ocean and it is always full of surprises.  
241 condo units … (6 comments)

daytona beach shores: Some Mighty Competitors Out There - 05/14/12 12:54 AM
Being in vacation and event spot means that you get mighty competition. I remember my lazy photos of Shuttle launch made from Ponce Inlet, and before I got down to my condo from the garage, which was couple of minutes, and wrote a short blog, I was stunned to see a blog post already published by Gary Woltal, and boy, what a phenomenal photo of this Shuttle did he have there.
I have never been that close to the Shuttle in my life. It felt like he was with the crew there, so freaking close, that you sort of could see … (14 comments)

daytona beach shores: Quiet "Winter" Morning on the Intracoastal in Daytona Beach Shores - 01/26/12 10:20 AM
Quiet "Winter" morning on the Intracoastal in Daytona Beach Shores
We are getting just days away from February, but the temperature is more like in March, and in the last week even the water in the ocean went up from 66F to 68F. It is really comfortably warm, and in the car you need AC. It was 76F on the beach at 6 PM. Absolutely not bad.
Of course, we have another month – February – which is considered second coldest month, and the weather can change practically instantly, so the winter is not over yet, but there isn’t much … (6 comments)

daytona beach shores: Perfect Evening in Daytona Beach Shores - 10/01/11 07:22 AM
Perfect evening in Daytona Beach Shores. Air temperature – 83F, water temperature – 83F.  It all changes tomorrow as the first cold front is coming and for the first time in several months night temperature will fall below 70F. They say that on Saturday we will not go higher than 78F, and after high 80s and low 90s for months, it will feel like winter (don't laugh at me, it is all relative...)
But today I am enjoying this warm temperature. The water is so perfect, that I did not want to get out of the Ocean. This is the beauty … (8 comments)

daytona beach shores: Friendly Sharks - 07/24/11 03:46 AM
William Johnson posted Photography| The Longest Pier on the West Coast - Ocean Beach Pier! It is a stunning photo of the longest concrete pier on the West Coast, but it is not the length that makes the blog post so fascinating, it is the beauty of the photo.
There is a small cafe on the pier near to the far end of it, and Kristen Lindquist left a comment and said that she would not venture to this cafe as she was afraid of sharks. And that's where I thought that our Daytona sharks are friendlier.
You can be … (29 comments)

daytona beach shores: Daytona Beach Shores. July 23, 2011 - 07/23/11 02:01 PM
July along with August is the hottest month in Daytona Beach. shows that is 84F at 7:30 PM. They show that tomorrow we will have 92F.
It is 95F in New York, where we lived before coming to Florida. That's why I love when New Yorkers tell me that it is hot in Florida. We are often cooler in summer, and yes, we are warmer in winter, but isn't it what New Yorkers want in the midst of cold and tiring winter?
I am a beachside resident and we will not have 92F on the beach tomorrow. It will … (18 comments)

daytona beach shores: The Beach... I Mean Daytona Beach - 07/19/11 07:23 PM
It is mid July in Daytona, summer in full swing, hot and humid everywhere, except right on the Beach. The ocean breeze brings cooler air and makes walking on the beach a pleasure.
I am on the beach each evening except when it is raining. You can't get tired of this view. It is always different, and it changes every minute. The sun, the clouds, the waves... they all affect how the ocean looks and there are more combinations up the nature's sleeve than chances in winning a jackpot in Powerball.
I bring my heavy Canon 5D Mark II, but leave it … (26 comments)

daytona beach shores: Evening in Daytona Beach Shores on the Eve of 4th of July - 07/02/11 07:09 PM
My best shots are those that I have no taken. When I do not have my camera with me, that's when the best photo ops are happening. Yesterday it looked gloomy, but there was no rain, and I figured that there was no reason to take a camera with me.
My nearly 11-yo grandson is with us this week. We took a short drive to the closest park a half mile from us, and when I got out of a car, I saw that the ocean was just beautiful. The water was the color of steel and there was no horizon, … (16 comments)

daytona beach shores: After the Rain. Rainbow - 06/26/11 04:58 PM
It was getting dark in the middle of this Sunday... Clouds were getting heavier and rain was just minutes away.
I was to meet a client at the airport and take him to see the condo unit in Oceans Six in Daytona beach Shores, that he bought, but has not yet seen.

Of course, I wanted him to like it, and I hoped the rain will be over by the time we get to the unit.
It worked perfectly. the sun came out, and made everything so nice. Looking at this photo it is hard to believe that only … (26 comments)

daytona beach shores: Amazing, What An IPhone Can Do... - 06/11/11 08:50 AM
The beauty of summer is that days are long, and even if you are late in the office, you still have all the time to enjoy the ocean and the beach. I live in Daytona Beach Shores, less than 10-minute drive from my office, and this is a rare time when I am on the beach every evening.

I usually only have my I-Phone with me, and every time I regret that I do not have my Canon Mark II, as the  changing beauty is overwhelming, and you always have the feeling that  you will never see it like that… which … (27 comments)

daytona beach shores: June Evening in Daytona Beach Shores - 06/08/11 03:58 PM
In June days stay long and the sun is lazy to roll into the Intracoastal, and moves slowly, hiding behind marshmallow clouds, firing up the edges. White clouds up in the sky that are no longer basking in the sun become darker and grayer, and those lucky ones to be in the way, turn pink.

The wind is high and the clouds move fast getting darker and heavier. They are promising rain, though this is yet just a whisper... Street lights are still not on, and headlights of cars are like a myriad of bright bulbs on dark asphalt.

daytona beach shores: Evening After Thunderstorm in Daytona Beach Shores - 05/28/11 08:39 AM
The blunt of the thunderstorm was across the  Intracoastal, but you could see the lightning and still hear the sound of thunder...
I was working at my computer watching the retention pond filling up with water turning it into what we call «seasonal waterfront". I did not notice when the rain stopped, and then suddenly saw the clouds lit with sunlight. It was such a metamorphose...
I rushed to the roof with my camera, as I have been waiting for this moment for some time. The ocean was dark. The sky over the Intracoastal was dark, but the sun was making … (9 comments)

daytona beach shores: Life is Coming Back to Daytona Beach Shores - 05/21/11 04:33 PM
We are getting into busy season here in Daytona. Hotels get busier and busier and it is not even unusual to see a «no vacancy» sign on weekends, when Daytona is packed with tourists, locals from Orlando and other inland areas, and participants and spectators of events, which still make Daytona what it is: Daytona.

Here's the shot on Saturday in the pool area of Hawaiian Inn Resort, a popular condo-hotel in Daytona Beach Shores. The resort is just getting out of the major renovation and has completed concrete restoration. All balconies are new, and there are still a couple … (7 comments)

daytona beach shores: Sunglow Pier and Crabby Joe's Deck & Grill in Daytona Beach Shores - 05/20/11 04:57 PM
Sunglow Pier is a staple in Daytona Beach Shores. One of the places where you can always find fishermen... With a restaurant Crabby Joe's Deck & Grill, it is a very popular place both with locals and tourists. Of course, with my vegan diet, I am enjoying it from the outside.

It is less than 2 miles from where I live, and when I choose to go south for a walk, this is where I go. It  is next to one of the  most beautiful condos in Daytona Beach area - Ocean Villas.

There are always people by the pier, you hear … (6 comments)

daytona beach shores: Evenings in Daytona Beach Shores - 05/16/11 08:07 PM
Evenings in Daytona Beach Shores sometimes display such an array of colors, that you can only stop in awe and watch. Setting sun splits the sky and paints it gradually from ink to turquoise, clouds catch the light of the sinking sun and you have them from gray-blue to pink...

And it keeps changing every minute... You are just staying and watching it...
My new camera gets rightfully frustrated with me, that I still can't figure many things out. I am getting excited and just take pictures and not really checking how they come. So then at home I am deleting, … (24 comments)
