This past week has been filled with quiet family time and getting to know the boat. Tony and I are learning how to travel and dock as a team, and we are settling easily into our roles and routines. The boat is lovely. Wandering down the inter-coastal has been a delightful experience. It is so pretty! Especially early mornings, underway with the sun low and a hot coffee in hand. So beautiful!
I was asked about the flag which we fly off the aft flybridge. It is a small white flag with a double blue F facing forwards and backwards… it stands for “Fairform Flyer” which is the Huckins brand.
Inside the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, FL.
After New Smyrna we cruised to Cocoa, FL where we parked for two days. We picked up a rental car and spent a full day at NASA’s base in Cape Canaveral, the “Kennedy Space Center”. Coolest. Field trip. Ever.
Words cannot describe how exciting it was to learn about our country’s space program. We saw the Space Shuttle Atlantis, the Apollo Program and wandered through the “Rocket Garden”… the space center was one for the record-books of cool things to do with your family. There is a launch happening on 4 December so we will be sure to tune in – or watch the sky, if we are close enough on that day (Date: Dec. 4, 2014 — 7:05 a.m. Eastern. Mission: Flight Test of NASA’s New Orion Spacecraft). The Orion will carry four crew-members on a short testing flight mission.
At the entrance, there is a great quote by JFK who pioneered our US Space Program. Unfortunately he died before he could see the first lunar landing.
