Looking east, out the channel, toward the Halifax River, I got thinking about Sam Cooke's song - A Change is Gonna Come. Released on 22 December 1964, the song had a different meaning than it does today. Today, it means the bridge at the end of the channel will soon be gone. Built in 1955, the Tom Staed Veterans Memorial Bridge is too old. And, it's a draw bridge. It will be replaced by a modern design, tall enough for yachts and sailboats to pass under. Construction was to begin in mid-2015. Environmental issues are being debated, so it looks more like 2016. When done, this is what it will look like. The video was shot at the final presentation to the community in January 2015.

The Halifax River Yacht Club, founded in 1896, is the oldest yacht club on the east coast still on its original site. It is the only private organization in continuous operation - 1896 to the present - in the Daytona Beach area. The primary objective of the Halifax River Yacht Club is to encourage the improvement of the marine industry in the Daytona Beach area, as well as develop youth and family programs to encourage greater awareness of the Halifax River ecosystem.
