Sunset Photos at New Smyrna Beach

Just before Hurricane Nicole showed up to ruin the local beaches, my daughter came to visit from New Hampshire. She definitely chose the right week! While she was here we had sunshine and warmth. A few days later the beaches were pummeled by the storm.

She arrived on a Tuesday, and we had to go to the beach that evening. These are a few of the photos I took from New Smyrna Beach at the end of Flagler Ave. where Breakers restaurant is located. We walked a little just so she could enjoy having her toes in the sand!

The lights on the second floor of Crabby’s Restaurant were shining in the darkness.

A few days later we went back to this part of the beach to walk and swim. A storm moved up from the south and we all hid under the pavilion to stay somewhat dry.

At this point I didn’t even know about Nicole and the damage the storm would do to this area. My son and I visited this same area the day the storm arrived (overnight) to get some pre-storm photos. You can see here how low tide should look, and the difference when the storm was approaching.

While my daughter visited, we went to the beach three times, went boating once, and visited the boat ramp park to swim. She was able to get her fill of saltwater and sunshine!

  1. Some beautiful atmospheric photos – I particularly like the one with the figures and the light illuminates them.
