    Things you see on a ride - Autumn in Florida

    A great day for a ride through Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge out to Playalinda Beach.

    On the left is launch pad 39A with the Space Shuttle Discovery getting set for launch on November 1. That will be the next-to-last launch, unless one more gets funded sometime next spring. The end of the shuttle program. If you've never seen a shuttle launch, you need to get here for one.



    On the right is pad 39B, which is getting disassembled.

    Not many folks out at the nude beach:



    This fellow was sunning himself on the road, and I almost ran over him:





    Last but not least, they're building me a hill to replace the swing bridge out to the beach. Hurrah for Obamabucks!:

    So Obama is doing something to make florida a bit more interesting for the Locals- but I think he ought to do something about those "Mobile" speedbumps on the road. Covering them with a more tyre friendly surface would help.

    Had an interest in the Shuttle program ever since I saw the first one land. That is spectacular- I may not be bothered by the launch of one but those landings are unbelievable.
