Us and Jon McBride

Us and Jon McBride

Today it was Ian's turn to be the child in the lolly shop as we spent the day at the Kennedy Space Centre at Cape Canaveral. We had lunch with a real astronaut and he told us about some of his experiences in the space shuttle. His name is Jon McBride (should google him - a real underachiever - not), went for a ride in a launch simulator, toured the facility including the launch sites, the Saturn 5 rocket, the actual Atlantis shuttle, details & memorabilia on all the Apollo missions, and the list goes on. An excellent day. And Kerstins day was made by spotting 9 wild alligators and a dolphin as we travelled around. The countryside round here is so green and lush and no one seems to care about water usage - which does my head in a bit!!  Discovered tonight that we could see the Disney fireworks from our balcony - what a bonus!!
