Daytona Beach

As has become the routine on our trips lately, we made up some time yesterday on the interstate after lagging behind schedule. We left Savannah, stopped for a T-shirt, and boogied down I-95 to Daytona. We did get off below Jacksonville to take a ride through St. Augustine, which we're glad we did, but we didn't pay to drink from the famed Fountain of Youth. US-1 was too many traffic lights, so it was back out to the "big road."

We got to Daytona Beach to find it way, way emptier than we expected. It was a good 85-90 degrees, sunny, and the place was almost desolate. We rode up and down the strip looking for a place within walking distance of somewhere to eat and have a drink, and ended up with a great deal on a beachfront view.

We took a walk on the beach, got showered, and had a burger at the beachfront cafe next door. Then a hike up to Main Street to hang out at the Boot Hill Saloon (Better off there than across the street) and all the biker joints that line both sides. We didn't realize all the biker-specific places that operate year-round on Main St.

Anyway, we slept in a bit and then headed south for the last time. Only 5o more miles to go to Titusville and Kennedy Space Center.
