The trip from Apalachicola to Melbourne was on on of those “picture perfect” days. We decided to forego I-10 and hit the back roads to Melbourne. it was an easy drive and took only 7 hours. Highly recommended route.
So glad that we got off the back roads in Orlando and headed east on 528 towards the Kennedy Space Center. We had forgotten that Friday was the launch of the SpaceX rocket, and happened to see it launch from our front row seats in our car. I (Maggie) was too busy watching to photograph the beginning stages, but managed to snag one photo of the smoke trail.
