I love May in Daytona. For many years it was kind of a break in the storm, so to speak. Falling just after Race Week, Bike Week and Spring Break, May has historically given us a reprieve before the summer tourist traffic. While not the most profitable month for the many businesses in our area reliant on tourist traffic, it gave us locals a chance to enjoy the near perfect weather and slow stroll you might associate with a small town. Unless we’re breaking records, it’s usually not to hot or cold, doors and windows open (to a screened enclosure of course), I love it. Now a days we can look forward to the Country 500 at the Speedway to give us a burst of tourist traffic toward the end of the month. Take a look at our events line-up on page 5 for several other music festivals this month. I would love to see us add one more event that might have the impact Jeep Beach did for our April.

Personally I enjoy so many things this time of year, and I take comfort in being a creature of habit. I love getting my hands in the soil and filling my pots with lots of native Florida plants like Dwarf Sugar Palms, Trailing Lantana, Periwinkle, Bush Daisy, Milk Weed and grasses. I don’t even mind the Spring cleaning, pressure washing and grill cleaning so badly needed to get ready for the pool season.

tal and physical overhaul does the body good. Yoga mat outside and a clean state of mind. I love to spend a great deal of time on and off the water and am a big fan of my membership at Freedom Boat Club. As a single woman, who loves to boat but has little time, I love this club. But if you are in the market for a new boat, you don’t want to miss the boat show May 18, 19 and 20 at the Halifax Marina. May is also the time of year that all of us with little ones getting out of school for the summer, start thinking about summer camps. See page 5 this issue, we gathered dozens of the best choices for you to call for information. Act quick they fill up fast. May has it’s downfalls though, one of which is fleas. Those pesky critters, look inside for information on Val-U-Vet mobile to get your best friend treated before it gets out of hand. Also, exciting news is that the Ocean Walk Shoppes is at capacity so check out the line up of unique businesses inside.
