It wasz 86 degrees out in Florida today so we head to the beach! (Ironically, we live 45 to 60 minutes from the east coast, yet only go to the beach 3 or 4 times a year). Today was perfect. The water was COLD but my kids don't really like to go "in" anyways. They prefer to play in the sand and make castles. I love that you can park on the beach in Volusia county. Perfect for my van . We don't have to unpack and carry everything. It's right there with us!
