Our two night stay at Embassy Suites prior to the cruise was very nice. (We took a day to tour Sea World: separate blog). You can't beat the value--two-hour free Manager's Happy Hour in the evening and a hot breakfast buffet with made to order omelets. One cook, named Pee Wee, was especially nice and had a bright and sunny disposition for an early morning gig! We paid $110 a night (including taxes) and took advantage of two happy hours and ...

I crossed a causeway bridge over the Banana River and I recall that they used to barge sections of the Saturn 5 up this waterway for stacking at the vehicle assembly building. I see ...
... in the Apollo/Saturn V Center, where bleachers were set up for rocket launch viewing. A fellow had a telescope set up, so that we could see the rocket on the launch pad clearly. Then the storm clouds moved in, and once the lightning started we were ordered off the bleachers and into the building for safety - just 10 minutes before the scheduled launch. This area in Florida is called the lightning capital. We were certain that the mission ...
