As a little break from all the hecticness and mania of the parks, we decided to take a little ‘day-off’ visiting Florida’s Space Coast. We were actually really lucky to go at that time because we were there less than two weeks before the final Shuttle Launch, so we got to see the shuttle (at a distance of course) on the pad ready for launch. The building behind Ben and I is where they assemble the shuttle and all its lauchers and whatnot, and it is apparently the largest building in the world by it’s footprint, and is so big it could house the Statue of Liberty!
We spent most of the day around the Kennedy Space Center, pretending we were astronauts (see photo above!), then late afternoon we left and went to Cocoa Beach. We had a wander on the beach, but it was a little cloudy, visited the Ron Jon Surf Shop where I bought a bag (I have a story about this bag actually!) then went for tea at a really lovely restaurant overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway where we saw dolphins and had a really lovely meal, I had scallops that were amazing and I was too busy enjoying them to take pictures!!
