The end of another great day

This was a busy week! JC is doing much better and is able to participate in all activities. Our campground is called KARS. It a campground originally setup for the families of the military that worked at Cape Canaveral. Since all those folks are gone, it has been opened up to all retired military. We had a great little spot right along the water.

First up on the agenda, was a Segway tour I found on Groupon of "Cape Canaveral" area. It was really of a rapidly growing Port Canaveral and the newly named Canaveral Beach. A new place being developed as an alternative for the cruise ships that currently stop in Miami. It was the first time for Carol to be on a Segway. She and John took to it like duck to water. It was really chilly, but a great time.

We also visited Merritt Island. This is a wildlife preserve and great for birding. The highlights were actually getting a photo of the elusive Kingfisher. We have been trying to get a photo since Big Cypress National Monument and the Everglades. Next was a great find of a Glossy Ibis. Another bird that you need to be at the right place at the right time. And, finally, was witnessing a huge flock of the American White Pelican. It was breathtaking to see them flying in by the hundreds. It was a sea of white feathers. Enough to bring tears to the eyes.

We also did a walking tour of Titusville. And, of course, spent the day at the Kennedy Space Center and visited the Astronaut Hall of Fame! What a busy week. We are off to St. Augustine....one of my favorite places.
