The Driftwood Inn

Bumpin' around Vero Beach, one must stop at the Driftwood Inn.

Established in the early 1900's by Waldo Sexton in Vero Beach, Florida, and named to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1994, the Driftwood Resort today offers accommodations accentuated with an abundance of fascinating artifacts from Waldo's personal collection and is rich in historical overtones.

It goes without sayin', it's a great bar.

We came upon Aquamarina by accident.
Halifax Harbor, our usual stop in Daytona, was full. The manager there suggested we try Aquamarina... just next door.
We did and found a very nice, quirky/comical staff, who treated us very well. It's less crowded and much more sedate than Halifax. And... there's a great restaurant on-site... The Chart House.
This will be our first choice in Daytona from now on.

The wind is still howlin' like stink and out of the north. Vero Beach and Loggerhead Marina has been a nice respite and a great place to hunker down till this blow, blows away.
