Back from the Beach

65MD and I have returned from a glorious beach stay.  We went to Ormand beach, which is just north of Daytona beach.  By 'just north' I mean, that at one intersection on the main highway, one side is Ormand and the other side is Daytona!  My family had gone to Daytona when I was a little girl and I was curious as to how many of my childhood memories were accurate.

There is no way to prove how many pink hotels were there when I was a child.  Hotel color was very important to me and my sisters. Judging by the accuracy of my memories of the beach, I think my memory of hotel color is spot on.

I wasn't able to enjoy playing in the surf since it was so strong and I had to be constantly planting my feet hard to keep my balance.  It was painful on my hips.  It was OK since the water was still very cool.  The sand near the surf is quite hard packed so it was easy to stroll up and down the beach.  That was more important to me anyway.  I'll play in the surf once both hips have been replaced and have healed.

Our hotel had a pool and I was most happy in the pool doing my therapy.  That was the place where I was most pain free.  Some of the exercises tweaked my left hip a bit, but other than that, I was pain free.  It was wonderful and enough to make me research getting a membership to a pool this summer.

We had a wonderful time of being lazy and enriching our vitamin D!!!


  1. Sounds marvelous! Welcome home, although you might would rather be at the beach. :)

  2. Yay for vacations! Looks like rain on Tuesday. Will keep an eye on things.

  3. YAY! Glad you had the pool to enjoy!!!!

  4. So glad you had the pool! I've often thought that having a membership a pool would be beneficial for me.

  5. I know Ormond Beach well as it's just south of Flagler Beach where I've spent many weeks during the month of January over the past few years. Glad you had a good time.

  6. Seems, you enjoyed the pool. I dont know how to swim :(
