Daytona via Bournemouth

DSC09998 (1300x974)Sometimes I find that I can travel for a long distance yet find yourself back in familiar surroundings.  Daytona Beach is 4000 miles from Bournemouth, a long way south as well as west.  But with the broad sandy beaches and wedding-cake pier, seabirds and arcades, they could almost be east/west reflections of one another.

The main difference is the substitution of hotels for bluffs, the American habit of driving on the beaches, and the profusion of ‘surf shops’' selling anything and everything except boards and wetsuits.
