Space Shuttle Endeavor

This weekend Hubby and I went to Epcot Center and, on the way back to Juno Beach this morning, stopped at Titusville to watch the lift off of the space shuttle Endeavor.
We weren't the only ones that wanted to have a look at Endeavor's last flight.  There was an estimated 700,000 people who watched the lift off in person. 
This picture only shows one little area where people gathered.
It was truly exciting to watch as the shuttle took flight.
All too soon it disappeared into the clouds, but then the sound of the roar of the shuttle lifting off thundered across water, giving everyone another thrill.

The last flight of the shuttle Atlantis will take place in July.  Somehow, I think there may be even more than 700,000 people to view the very last flight of the space shuttle program.

Next time I blog I'll post the promised pictures of Whitehall Mansion, otherwise known as the Flagler Museum.  When Blogger was down last week I lost many of the comments that had been made about Key West.  Hopefully, there won't be any trouble this week!

  2. I haven't seen a shuttle launch but I have been to Kennedy Space Center and that was quite an experience.
    I have been at my Mom's near Ocala and a shuttle landed and shook her house and the windows rattled. lol
    I'm glad you're getting to experience so many fun things.
