Sunset Over The Gulf

Posted in Astronomy, Space Shuttle, Traveling at 9:47 pm by Rebekah

My space trip continues. The space shuttle launch is now set for no earlier than May 10, which means it’s more likely I may be able to come back to Florida to see it.

I spent a couple of hours at SeaWorld Orlando today, and then drove on to Tampa / St. Petersburg. I’m spending the night at the Bilmar Beach Resort, a very nice beachfront hotel that affords me a view of the Gulf of Mexico, a couple hundred yards away.

The Gulf was quite warm even for early May, and extremely clear. In fact, I had never seen water so clear before. I waded out a little ways and went swimming in the shallow water, and then watched a beautiful sunset.

Tomorrow I’ll drive up the Florida Gulf Coast on my way back to Oklahoma!
