We’re on the trip!
Today we left Denver on a Incontinent (United + Continental) 757 for a fast flight to Orlando. The trip was totally uneventful – Barb noticed people she knows getting onto the flight, so they were most likely heading down for an Atlas V launch that’s supposed to happen on Friday.
After picking up our rental car, a Ford Escape, we hit the Beachline Expressway heading for Cocoa Beach. We’re spending the night at the RonJon Cape Caribe Resort, a timeshare that’s close to the port. Immediately after checking in, we headed over to the infamous Grills Restaurant & Tiki Bar, a favorite watering hole of many in the space biz. Beverages and grilled mahi were on the menu. Yum!
The Carnival Pride, a ten year-old ship that used to be the flagship of the Carnival line, sailed at 7 PM. It’s a blast watching these ships head out to see from the tiki bar.
More tomorrow. Stay tuned!
