Today we drove from St. Augustine down Highway 1 to Titusville, Florida. Along the way, we saw the space shuttle launch. We weren't close enough to see the actual lift-off at 2:45 pm, but we could see the con-trail from about 10 miles away. We were driving along Highway 1 at 70 miles per hour, listening to the NASA count down on the radio, and then that amazing white cloud trail that follows the shuttle filled the sky. Wow! Otherwise, entirely a quiet day.
Tomorrow we visit NASA's Kennedy Space Center. What a testament to hundreds and thousands of hours of creative work. When we checked into our hotel, Best Western, dubbed Space Shuttle Inn, everyone was excited the launch had gone well. The day ended with a glorious sunset. Make it a good week! Beth
