Ocean Walk, Daytona Beach, Florida

Recently, my husband Sandy and I went to Ocean Walk in Daytona Beach. He took pictures for my new series of cards and we lunched at Johnny Rocket! Of course I went off my self imposed diet and had a wonderful cheeseburger and sweet potato fries! I also ate some of Sandy's cheese fries (I was bad that day). The waiters did a fun line dance to an old rock tune, that was adorable! They have nickel machines at each table to play rock music from back in the day, but only the ones at the counter work. It was fun. This story is illustrated by those cards, made from the pictures that Sandy took that day and sketched with his camera and I added digital images to. Now, that's fun too!
