Where I stayed
Blue Spring State Park
Back to Kennedy Space centre for a visit to everything we missed out on at last Fridays launch. Another ride on the fantastic shuttle launch simulator, tour of early spaceflight and the robot scouts.
After lunch at the Orbit Cafe, a 2 hr drive gets us to Blue Springs state park just as the gates are closing at 8pm sharp
We manage a twilight swim in the crystal clear spring waters sharing the waters with a few schools of various fish including some fearsome looking 1/2 meter long Gar fish and some flathead type looking fish that are so tame they need to be physically removed from the stairs leading into the lagoon.
Apart from the manatees, the main attraction here is to dive, snorkel or grab a tube and float down from the spring head a mile away. We will be doing that tomorrow morning, despite all the warning signs about the 'Gators.
