Quiet Sanctuary...and FREE Beer...during Daytona Bike Week?

What?? Peace and quiet, and free beer in Daytona, you say?? Oh yes, and we found it.  Well...Ormond actually, but same place, isn't it?

Ormond Crab House is located on US 1 but easy to miss...we actually drove right past and made a quick u-turn to check it out.

I think most riders concentrate on the Statey parked in the median and don't even see it. Here's a hint...the cop car is empty. We fell for it every time!

Being from New England, really wasn't sure how Florida seafood would compare but figured we'd enjoy a beer and sit by the water...can't go wrong with that.

Ordered beer from the owner, stand pictured below....asked how much...he said. Nothin'! Never charge for beer...we just ask for a donation to keep the place running.  Well, alright...we found our new spot.  I think we donated more than the solo cup of beer was worth but the gesture was very kind and he was a great guy...happy to help keep the place afloat.

They were offering oyster shooters for $1. Never had 'em before....and probably never will again. Trying to expand my life and experience new things...never needed to try these. I can confidently say oysters will not be a part of my new life. My friend loved them though...and I think they may have worked their magic on her cuz she had a nice little night for herself.  :)

I did like the steamers though...think I might have liked them even more than New England Steamers. Also had some delicious crab dip and bought extra to take back to house. Yummy.

Beautiful spot on the Intracoastal Waterway....with great people and delicious food. Highly recommend!

Main Street at Night - Daytona BikeWeek

So off to Daytona and I forget my chargers.  All were sitting up in my office packed nice and neatly, waiting for me.  Realized this too far from home. Had to borrow my mom's not so great Walmart camera. And I have lost my photographer, which keep in mind. Pics kinda suck. I need my photographer back, don't you agree? I do.

First night, we were off to Main Street, and Iron Gate was our first stop.

Country girl, shake it for me, girl, shake it for me....(that's Luke Bryan singing)

A friendly reminder from your lovely bartenders

 The girls at Froggy's do whatever you want for tips, or so it seemed.

Main Street was hopping for a Tuesday night


Drank me lotsa 'dis...ugh

From the sidelines...

 Soda lines really weren't long :)

More sidelines...lost my driver too so this is what I do for from the sides

Graffiti everywhere...thought this was funny, tho I have no idea what it means


Bikers are a sensitive crowd...he brought his Eeyore.  No bother.

Animal! MahnaMahna....

 Lotsa food for hungry bikers...


She created quite a stir...

I will leave you with this photo...sorry for the quality. Dude on your back seat cruising down Main Street...yes or no??
