After leaving there we travelled down to Galveston & camped at the ferry terminal that takes you over to Port Bolivar. We'll be catching the ferry in the morning.
Found our way through Houston to the Johnson Space Centre. It occupies more than 1,600 acres & employs more than 14,000 people. It is home to Mission Control for all space missions & is also where astronauts are trained & NASA program's are managed. Everything here is real. We did a tram tour of some of the grounds, they take you past Mission Control, through the training centre & to the Saturn V rocket. We spent nearly 5 hours here as it was so interesting.
