Romantic Orlando – New Smyrna Beach Firerings

Flagler Avenue, New Smyrna Beach

New Smyrna Beach is my favorite beach.  And since I’m an Orlando native – I suppose we can officially call it the local favorite.  However, ALL the east coast beaches are simply wonderful.  New Smyrna just happens to be the closest to our house, and the fact that my daughter-in-love is from NSB helps too.  🙂 We timed it last night, and we had our feet in the sand in less than an hour.

The occasion?  Our son’s 29th birthday dinner – he chose for all of us to reserve a Firering on the beach, pack our dinner and enjoy the sunset/full moon rising from the shore.  It was a memory worth all the effort.

After all the shopping, cooking, packing, loading, driving and then, unloading of food, chairs, tables, firewood, blankets, bottles, and sand toys – we had the best night!

As we gathered around the fire hand in hand thanking God for the gift of the beach, our family and the opportunity to all be together, I realized once again, how blessed we are.  With all the changes about to take place with our daughter moving to Georgia in less than two weeks, this was simply an evening to reflect on the goodness of God and His amazing blessings in our lives.  It doesn’t matter how many miles separate us – God has knit our hearts together for a lifetime, and one day there will be no more sorrows, no more goodbyes.

If you love to snuggle up by the fire – you may want to reserve your own evening by the ocean.  Volusia County offers seven fire pits along the beach which are free to use, but restrictions apply:

    This was a wonderful suggestion of romantic activity.
    I heard Rush Limbaugh talk about he has an ‘appointment’ every month on his West Palm beachfront at the rear of his home to watch the moon rise. I was envious, but now I don’t have to be because we can reserve a fire ring and do the same thing! Yeah! Thanks for the idea.
