Walking on the beach in Daytona —
The beach ahead of us ……
Turning to look at the sea wall — I see this still on the wall….
This is just one of those reminders of the Old Daytona….
Elvis stayed here … at the Copacabana
The time of small family owned hotels, small groups of cabanas along the beach. People my age remember this Daytona – the old days when things on the beach were quieter – simpler – and lower. The days when a 6 story building was considered a high building.
The days when you loaded up the station wagon – while dad had one hand on the steering wheel and drank a beer in the front seat and you motored down the road going 75 MPH without a seat belt. You’d hear — simmer down back there or I’ll pull this car over —
Yes, those were the days !!!
