Kennedy Space Center

We drove to the Kennedy Space Center, which we had visited before when we lived in Florida.

Our second visit was as exciting as the first. 

After visiting the Johnson Space Center in Houston, we now understand the difference between the two facilities and how they work together.  However, it was great to see the equipment and spend time going through the exhibits at our leisure.  The highlight of the visit was the Saturn V rocket restored to its original condition and the associated Apollo Mission artifacts.  Although the technology is over 40 years old, it is still amazing to see up close.  One striking thing was how small the Mercury and Gemini rockets were in comparison.

After visiting the center, we returned to the coach just ahead of a thunderstorm.
