I am from Daytona Beach, Florida! As kids we would visit the sandy beaches multiple times a year and still do as adults with my children and grandchildren.

After hurricane Nicole came ashore causing a lot of damage, the beaches uncovered new objects and one being what is believed to be a wooden cargo ship from the 1800s.

Makes you think about how many times we walked over it every year now!

How Will Discovery Affect Beach Goers?

Now makes you wat to know how this will affect beach goers. The hurricanes already caused damage that is going to take months to repair and rebuild. Along with the ship's discovery, archeologists are not going to let you anywhere near the area and have the big section blocked off.

Also, would this discovery cause tourists to start digging up sand along the beach to try to find other objects that might have been on the ship and are still waiting to be discovered.

How are Residents Responding?

Many of the residents are not responding well to the discovering, as they are digging and causing more damage. Many say leave it as it is and leave the beautiful beach alone.

Businesses say awesome, as they believe the discovery of the ship will help them in upcoming Spring Break for 2023. As the hurricanes did some damage, tourists will still travel to see the discovery.

Right now, walking on the beach is still a pleasurable and enjoyable experience but the spot I love is blocked off now because it's too close to the ship.

Sorry to read the discovery impacted the part you love.

I was at Daytona beach once as a kid. My dad took us on vacation there, and we visited Disney World as well. I can remember being frightened going in the water as my mom warned me the jelly fish could be lethal. Of course anything I felt touching my leg I just knew was a jelly fish, hah hah.

Out of curiosity I searched for the story, and see it is already being partially covered back up by the waves carrying fresh sand atop it. According to the article, they don't plan on digging it all up due to the cost.

Hopefully the buzz will die down soon over it and you can get your peaceful beach back.

I wanted to add it shows you replied to this in my notifications, but when I click on it and come here I don't see it. I'm now ignoring whatever you wrote, it just isn't showing it to me.

now was a typo it should be not, lol.

Interesting story, Jannette!

That section of the beach could easily be closed for years, depending on the historical significance of the find and the permits required to do the excavation.

Frank

Yes, Frank is closed off and they asking for funding! All we would like to see is the beach preserved no more digging and building.

That’s fascinating to learn. You never know what lies beneath the surface. Interesting historical revelation.

Susan

This is a touchy subject for me unfortunately! Big business of course loves it due to revenue. I live around 16 hours from Daytona beach and 12 from Destin and we will travel there for a family mini vacation once in a while. If you were to benefit the beaches or land I would be on board.

Mother nature should be allowed to take its course naturally. We go and get in such a hurry to be rich we as people don't care what or who we hurt along the way! I hope this works out in the lands favor and not the pockets of the already rich!

Kevin and Son

I'm with you Kevin, Destin Florida beaches are beautiful as well and a bit more costly than Daytona Beach both are all about putting money in businesses' owners' pockets and not reserving the natural beauty.

This is very interesting, Jannette! I'm sure things will work themselves out eventually!
