Beaches are a popular hotspot for family vacations, honeymoons, and quick weekend getaways. When you think about it, there are few things more enjoyable than the sound of the steady ocean tide rolling in, the smell of the salty air, and the feeling of the warm sun upon your skin. If you're in need of a peaceful and relaxing escape, you'll be hard-pressed to find a spot better than the beach.
A man named Clint Blevins decided to take a quick trip to the oceanfront in Daytona Beach, Florida. One would assume that he spent the good portion of his day walking on the sandy shoreline and soaking in the beauty of the atmosphere. One day during his trip, the sky grew a little more muted and it looked as though a summer storm was rolling in. He made his way off of the beach and back into the safety of his lodging because he knew that beaches are a dangerous place during a storm if one fails to take proper caution. He decided to grab his video camera and take some footage while he waited out the storm.
Within mere seconds of filming, he captured a sight that instantly left him at a loss for words. In the middle of filming, a sudden jolt of lightning burst through the skyline and crashed into the ocean tide. As you can see in the footage below, the lightning strike was so powerful that it made a loud noise as the electricity hit the water. It looked as though a wire of fire was slipped down through the clouds and into the uneasy water. Thankfully, no one was in the water at the time of the strike! Check out the video clip below to see the breathtaking and jaw-dropping strike.
