Land of the free, home of the brave

Have you been hearing and feeling thunder this week? We sure have.

Did I mention we’re parked about 60 miles from Daytona Beach….and it’s Bike Week there?

We made a run to see it, hear it, and feel it.

On the way, we stopped past a sanctuary near the coast, and caught sight of a few feathered friends. In many ways, they were behaving like the bikers: big crowds, some swooping, others flying free.

During the course of 10 days, Daytona Beach hosts an estimated 600,000 bikes. We couldn’t even find a place to park! Robyn dropped me a few blocks from Main Street so I could shoot the central gathering area.

Ross and Ryan enjoyed the ride with the windows down!

It’s like nowhere else…..

Of all the bikes we saw, we actually like one here in our campground the best. Can you imagine Ross and Ryan riding on the back of a pair of trikes like the last photo?

We sure can…..

  1. Doug, Is it the Silver Honda that is your favorite?? Have you driven on the beach while at Daytona, that was always one of our favorites. Gald to hear you are still having a great time in the Ocala area. By this time it must really be getting quiet there in the campground. Happy trails. I told Robyn about my daughters dog Maggie that was expecting her pups. A picture is of Maggies 10 pups is on the GRASSYSOUNDMARINA sight and their facebook. Check it out, you may even see Frank and myself a the marina with our family. All my best & Luv to Robyn ,Ruth

    • Ruth, we sure like our Honda car, but trikes are SUCH a temptation! Robyn and I first met long ago when I rode a motorcycle, and trikes would allow us to share that fun with the twins. Oh yes, we always drive onto the beach when in the Daytona area!

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ROBYN, AND THANK YOU FOR THE PICTURES. DOUG, THANK YOU FOR the BIG TAXI – WE LOVE READING YOUR JOURNAL AND LOOKING AT THE PIX – GOD BE WITH ALL OF YOU – WITH LOVE – YOUR OLD NEIGHBOR – TIBBY AND STEVE TOO.
