Up, up and away

We are very lucky travellers, for on this vacation we have witnessed not one but two rockets go up into space. We thought we would miss the second launch, since we were in Orlando yesterday, picking up our son and his girlfriend from Disney, right during the scheduled launch time. But we were very fortunate. Thunderstorms caused yesterday's launch to be scrubbed and rescheduled for this evening. So, just before 7 p.m. tonight, we saw the Delta IV go up, up, up. It was wonderful. Please click on the above picture so you can see the bigger version.

And so our Florida vacation comes to a close with a bang. Tomorrow we pack up the van and start the drive home. We have all had a terrific time but, of course, it will be good to be home again.
