Day Trip

Yesterday we took a break from yard work (and the astonishing heat) and ventured over to Titusville on Florida’s Atlantic coast to witness one of the most gorgeous sights known to modern man…the launch of an actual space-faring vehicle, as captured (unfortunately through an impressive late-afternoon Florida humidity haze) above.

It is amazing how many people still turn out, in person, on a sweltering Florida day, in a tiny little town like Titusville, to watch this 31 year old miracle of engineering. There is no sense of ennui from those watching, no indication that any one of the thousands of people clapping and cheering it on were the least bit jaded by time, toil, or mishap. It is still one of the most exciting things we’ve ever seen, an actual spaceship, going into space.
