FLA day 4

Our journey on day 4 begins at a man made wilderness area. The place "cleans up" poop and makes it good water. So to prove the point, they made this very large wilderness spot that has many little ponds and lush grass and trees. It is full of all types of birds and alligators and probably snakes, but thank goodness I didn't see one of them. I had to put my copyright on some of the pictures because I might need to use them for something. 
We drove around the area, although they said you could walk or bike. I am sorry, but there were no cages, electric wire or anything. We were right next to the animals and I really appreciated the metal of the car between me and the alligators!

We then continued on to the Kennedy Space Center in Port Canaveral. Matt had been there when he was younger(much younger), but it was my first time. The rockets ect were really cool and it is amazing to imagine them orbiting around earth. We saw a great IMAX movie about the international space station. What was even cooler, was that it was in 3D so we got to wear cool glasses. I made a little collage because I was having fun on last night. The girls are standing in front of a life size photograph of some astronauts from the 60's. 

Blast off!

Looks like fun!

I'm with you: I would also enjoy metal in between myself and wild animals. :)
