Side trip to Kennedy Space Center

01 December 2012 | Port Canaveral
Joannie/sunny and warm!
Friday we weighed anchor in Titusville at 0930 and continued down the ICW to the turn-off for Cape Canaveral canal. After getting through 2 bascule bridges and a lock, we came to the Port Canaveral Yacht club and docked for a couple of nights. Dinner at the yacht club was for those participating in the boat parade the following night, but we were invited to join them – and did. Our plan for Saturday was to go to the Kennedy Space Center, however we found out from the locals that the only way to get there was to get a cab or rent a car; so we rented a car for the day. The KSC was well worth the trip. In addition to the regular bus tour of the property we had a tour of the huge Vehicle Assembly Building and Saturn V launch pad, took in an amazing 3-D IMAX film about the International Space Station and finished with a “Launch Experience” complete with sounds and G-forces. My mother was a high school science teacher during the 60’s and 70’s and took a great interest in the “space race.” So we never missed a launch or rescue when they were on TV. Today standing next to those incredible machines, it was thrilling to look back at those times and hear the story so well preserved.
Tomorrow we move on, taking the ICW farther south.
