SOOooooooo…I woke up at 2:30 pm today. Want to know why? I didn’t get home until 5 am last night because we had causeway tickets to the launch!!
Oh, wait! There is no shelter. Which means thousands of people will have to make a mad dash to the buses or jump into the alligator infested waters. Don’t you think we should be warned about that before we get on the bus all the way to the “point-of-no-return-until-the-shuttle-launches” causeway??
Yep. Needless to say I had already staked out an escape route and had my personal items ready for a grab-n-go sprint emergency exit. I’m not even kidding or trying to be funny. I really was nervous. Once you see the video, that I still need to figure out how to upload on here because it is kind of long, you will see what I mean. I am shaking like C-R-A-Z-Y during the whole thing.
But I digress…
Let’s take a look at some of the pics I took before the big launch:
Astronaut Statue hovering over the Space Center (too high up to take pic with, otherwise I would have- but you already knew that)
Me and Matt on the Space Bus to the point of no return.
The Space TV on the Space Bus.
Matt standing “next” to the shuttle. (It’s the white blob).
The closest and clearest pic I could take of the shuttle from the causeway of death.
Matt’s reaction after the big LAUNCH!
PS- Did I tell you that I got a shirt at the gift shop that says “Does this shirt make me look weightless?” LOVE IT!
