We then did the Up-Close Tour ($25 for adults.) The tour took us through some of the normal sites, but one of the things Geoff was really keen on seeing was the VAB (Vehicle Assembly Building.) The VAB is where they put together the shuttles/rockets. It's 525 feet high, and it's a single story building. Geoff was telling me that it's so large that it can actually rain inside the building! While inside, we heard a woman talk who was a quilter and came to work at NASA to hand-sew the thermal blankets that were used on the shuttles. Pretty neat!

On Saturday, we went back up to Cape Canaveral and found a place for lunch that overlooks where the Cruise Ships pass as they leave. The restaurant is called Seafood Atlantic and it was SO GOOD!

Finally, today I checked out a new church in the area. It's the closest ELCA church to our new house, but I wasn't totally feeling it. I'll be checking out a few more before I put down roots. I think what will be a difficult transition for me is to start going to a large church. I really miss Immanuel, it's such a small intimate church that I know it's going to be hard to find a church like it. I just need a little time to warm up to the idea of a large church I suppose.
Oh, and all weekend long there's been a huge concert going on at Wickham Park. It's Runaway Country and we've been able to hear it from our apartment. Glad I decided not to buy tickets!!
