Where I stayed
Gamble Rogers State Recreation Area, Flagler Beach, Florida
Although only a few miles away from the coast, the wind was much weaker here but the rain was pretty torrential
If you're ever in Palm Coast and want to get onto the coast road, don't take the toll bridge. It's an absolute rip-off. It can only be 500 yards long but the minimum charge is $2! And the attendant was rude and obnoxious! What good value the Sunshine Skyway Bridge was further south!
As we drove back into Flagler beach late afternoon, it was obvious that they had had a serious amount of rain. There were huge puddles of water everywhere. Although the rain had stopped and the wind had subsided to a strong breeze the sky was still very grey, but it didn't stop the dozens of surfers who had come out to catch the big waves kicked up by the storm. We parked up and joined the others that were watching from just behind the beach, except they didn't have a nice hot brew and sticky donuts!
The best time of the day was just around sunset when the clouds had all more or less blown away and we actually saw the sun. It was a really pleasant evening and the sunset was beautiful. We think tomorrow is going to be a lovely day.
