The sun was out; it warmed up as the day went on.
I spent the day at the Kennedy Space Center, and enjoyed every minute of it. I took the NASA Up Close tour so was able to get close to launch pads, and saw the pad where they are preparing for a shuttle blastoff on Feb 12th. Everything was so well described by the staff, the bus routes were excellent and the IMAX movie in 3D was most interesting.
The day ended in Daytona Beach at a Super 8 that says it has wireless internet, but no matter what I do by talking with the help desk, ask the front desk to reset, etc. nothing will allow me to make connection. I am now in the breakfast area and for some reason it is working here.
I had dinner next door at the Ocean Deck Restaurant and had a great meal of grouper with a Guinness.
The hotel is directly on the beach, so the location is excellent, but it is not above 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
