We live on what is called the Space Coast. It is a small barrier island connected to mainland Florida by several bridges. There are rivers running through the "islands" as well. Here we are on Cape Canaveral looking at the crowd across the river who all have gathered to watch the launch. They are off one of the causeways here. This is as close as you can get to watch the launch without being on the base. This is as close as we can normally get. But Juan's unit was able to get access for this launch - which was awesome for us. Anyway in this picture you can see a manatee swimming in the river. There actually were several swimming there, but this one was surfacing while he was taking the picture.This is a gator that was chillin in the water nearby! Yikes! Can you see his eye? Thank goodness he stayed in the water!
This was our view of the launch. We were on a small strip of land between the two rivers. You can't see it from this picture but on the other side of the shuttle is the ocean.
Here is a close up of the shuttle getting ready to take off.

An awesome closeup

Now what polish would go with all this? I was tossed up for this one - but I decided on Color Club Worth the Risque - since it has the "futuristic" silver metallic look that reminds me of what I thought we would all be wearing in the future when I was a kid. Little did I imagine we would be wearing it - but just on our nails! This is mildly holographic. This is in full sunlight and you can see how little holo the effects are.
It's a pretty cool polish - but after discovering some pretty great holo polishes, this one is definitely the lightest I have experienced. Still cool though.
OK I better go eat lunch and shower and get these kids to the mall before I run further behind on my day. Have a great weekend everyone!
