Not long into our trip we went across the state line.
Susan found a great little place called Jetty Park Campground. It is right on the main route in and out for all the Orlando Cruise ships. We booked it for 3 nights so we can just sit and relax for a while. We are right across the river from Cape Canaveral where a lot of the famous rockets and space shuttles have blasted off to make history. Some of the ones that come to my mind are John Glenn who was first man to orbit the earth, Apollo 11 which put man on the moon for the first time, and the space shuttle Challenger that blew up shortly after liftoff. If you were alive when any of these happened I bet you can remember where you were when it happened.
Shortly after that a Carnival Cruise liner headed out to sea. This one was a bit smaller and there wasn't any partying going on but still lots of people waving goodbye as they set out on their adventure.
We took a walk down to the other end of the campground and saw one more cruise liner still in port. We waited for it to leave but we were in bed when we heard the horn blow. Some of the campsites have a great view of the boats coming and going, but this is an area without dogs so we couldn't camp there.
The view from our window tonight.
