The Space Station Bakeshop Captain’s Log

Florida – Day 1

The extended Gunn Clan has headed to Florida for summer vacation.
We drove (following all posted speed limits) down yesterday and spent the night in Titusville. Ariel and I enjoyed a dip in the pool after the long drive. Kevin kept us up giggling into the night by talking like the South Park Sur La Table employee (see the Margaritaville episode).
Day 1 was spent at Kennedy Space Center. this has changed a lot since my PDS science club trip back in 1985. We started the day with. the early bird tour. On the tour I had my first ever manatee sighting in the wild (ok I saw something splash and the tour guide said ‘manatee!’). Kennedy is the site of the second largest wildlife refuge in Florida, so in addition to the cool space facilities we saw lots of wildlife. We also went to the Star Trek Live show, which was geared at kids, but fun for a family of Trekkies.
We then drove to our hotel, the Regal Sun Resort in Lake Bueno Vista. Although Ariel and I wanted to hit the pool, we had a more important mission – Margaritaville Orlando. Kevin, Ariel and I headed out to see how this Margaritaville compared to the others we have visited (we loved it!). The burgers were delicious, they played two Jack Johnson sings AND The Tiki Bar Is Open. The Smugglers Hold held flip flops, shirts, a present for Katie and 2 CDs to add to our collection. And who can resist a place with a volcano that spews margaritas!
