Space shuttle launch

Last night Triny asked if we wanted to go to Cocoa Beach and watch the space shuttle launch. I told the kids yesterday that we'd try to go to the beach one day while we were here. It seemed like a perfect opportunity to go to the beach, shop at Ron Jon's, and see the shuttle take off.

So we shopped, then walked to the beach and enjoyed it for a few hours. I knitted on Mom's sock and talked with Triny, the girls walked up the beach, David took Sam and William to the water for a wade, after a while we settled down to get ready to watch lift-off.

Triny and the boys ate some freeze-dried ice cream.

Triny didn't like it much, but David did.

And when the shuttle was launched, we could see it perfectly.

Great pictures! I remember watching rocket launches as a kid living in Florida. Great memories.

Really neat! We were at Cocoa Beach this time last year. Even shopped at Ron Jon's. But, no space shuttle launch to watch. You had a perfect view!
