We have had a very full weekend here and the next month seems full of "livin" also.
A short amount of time tonight was spent at the beach with friends to see the shuttle off.
There were no scrubs and no dissapointment. I think this was one of the prettiest launches I can remember. So...3,2,1
Shuttle Discovery lifted off , right on time, at 7:43. We made it, with 2 minutes to spare.
The picture does not do it justice, but the sun was reflected in the cloud left behind by Discovery. I am sure this exhaust has some fancy name, but at the moment I have no idea what that is.
Now, what's a kid to do once the shuttle is safely in outer space?
Play of course WE'RE AT THE BEACH!
Over the dunes and behind the sea oats, the sun was setting too quickly Tomorrow awaits with new adventures all it's own, goodnight.
