If you live in Orlando or are visiting to Orlando, watch for a rocket launch at Kennedy Space Center. This is one of our family’s favorite activities. You can pay for a ticket at Kennedy Space Center for a special viewing area. However, you can also get a great spot for FREE! You can drive over to Port Canaveral area. Directly across from the Banana River is the launch pad. You have a perfect view, for no additional cost!
Enjoy our recent adventure to see the Delta Rocket launch from Kennedy Space Center.
If you are looking for an activity to keep the family busy until the launch, spend some time at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. This is the only place in the world where you can walk under the largest rocket ever flown, touch an actual moon rock, meet a veteran NASA astronaut, experience the International Space Station and stand nose-to-nose with Atlantis – all in the same day. Kennedy Space Center truly is an incredible experience for the whole family.
Yesterday I had an Eastern turkey hen that came into my hunting area. She came within 10 yards of my pop-up blind! It was awesome!
She was chirping, cutting, and making noise the whole way. The video, below, gives you a good opportunity to hear what the turkey hen calls are like in the area that I was hunting.
I kept cutting back to the left in the video, even though the turkey hen was going right, because I was convinced that the gobbler was going to follow her out from the left. He never did.
She continued making noise, until I tried to respond with my own call. After listening to it on video (that hit the cutting floor), I know why. I sounded awful! However, this was a great learning lesson for me! Since I heard her calls, I practiced a bit and managed to match her sounds, perfectly!
Nothing much happened for a couple hours after this encounter. Right at sunset, a gobbler scared me with several gobbles. He ended up moving away as a hard rain moved in. Although I went home empty-handed, it was an amazing hunt!
