So today we end the luxury hotel rooms & rough it for a couple of days at Space camp. Our day began with another awesome brekky, then it was a final pack up & then the huge journey, next door, to Space Camp. Checking in we were presented with our high fashion family camp t-shirts & then went up to our third floor bunkhouse. The bunkhouse sleeps six but thankfully each family has their own - ...
We got up late after a fitful sleep! Headed off to the Nasa Space Center. Amazing history of space travel and lots of fun things for the kids. A real live space shuttle on site, gives perspective on its immense size and the how astronauts can make there way to space. Precision is a must! What a great day!

So, we might not anchor as much as we had originally intended because we really want to get to the warm weather and the ocean. Guess we will have to make it up for lost time anchoring on the river by spending more time puttering around in the ocean. We are both looking forward to warmer weather.
