We spent Labor Day and the following weekends at KARS Park on Merritt Island. It sits directly across from the Kennedy Space Center and the cruise ship port on the Banana River. It's a park for military personnel and/or their friends. Our dear friend, a retired Marine Corps Lt. Colonel, one of a select few that flew the Harrier jet, got us a pass. So, we get access to this very quiet, serene, on the water with a boat launch campground, RV park.
So with full hook ups, we parked the RV at a site for a little over a week. Enjoying these views;
We ate too much, and laughed even more with great family and friends. We even got to celebrate Ms. Brenda's
The Moose even got out on his boat for the first time in a very long time.
We've lived in FL for almost 20 years and actually have been able to watch a space shuttle launch. However, this launch was over on the mainland, Cocoa, FL side. Well, let me tell you; I'm sure it was nothing like it would have been from KARS Park! We were woken out of a deep sleep at 1 a.m. to a rocket launch! I mean, if it wasn't tied down it came down. The RV was shaking and rattling and the noise was incredible! It only had one rocket booster, can you imagine the noise and power the shuttle would have had with the 2 solid rocket boosters! Incredible amount of power.
Now we are getting back into the groove, and planning our weekend workload at The Compound. Have a safe and productive weekend!
