It Was Amazing!

I stood on the balcony, with two of my sons, as we watched the "fly by"! It was amazing! I grew up loving the space program, and felt a sense of pride that Houston was a huge part.  Today was bittersweet, watching the "fly by" with patriot pride, as a bit of history was coming to it's end. 

I live in walking distance to NASA, and Space Center. The subdivision I live in, Nassau Bay,  is rich in NASA history-- developed to house astronauts, engineers, and all personnel for the NASA Space Program.















 Endeavor's retirement flight to Houston












It truly was more breathtaking in person.

    1. It was so nice, but we are still in Houston, Nassau Bay, the other heart of the space program. But, sometimes I think it might be nice to live in Florida. I've been there on several trips and it has been exceptionally nice. xo

    2. Nassua I thought that was in Florida, silly me. Still pretty area. Some of my family saw the shuttle when it flew into Ca and took some pics and posted on facebook. So cool.

    3. It's ok. Florida launches and Houston facilitates training and flight/space communications. It's actually all pretty amazing!

    1. I can see you having such a dream to be adventurous in space. I love the space exploration, but not sure I want to actually be in space, well maybe if it was like in Star Wars (lol). xo

  3. I have chills just seeing those gorgeous photographs. What a fantastic experience to see in person Shelly. Your area has such rich history with the space program. Exciting! As it turns out the Endeavor will be 'retiring' in nearly the same neighborhood where my husband grew up in LA.
    The weather is almost always lovely there. ;)
    Cheers, Heather xo

    1. Heather, I know this sounds a bit silly, but I'm glad to know that it has a good and 'lush'-ous home away from home. :) This area is rich in history, where I am living now, and it's sad to see some of its history fade away. But, on a positive note, there will be more history made!! xo

    1. Hi Bron! I remember watching the space adventures during class all through my school years. It was such a wonderful time, pioneering space for the benefit of humans on earth. I am hoping that NASA can build itself even bigger. xo

    1. Nancy, mine are borrowed. I don't have a very good camera for distance. I have great personal photos that look close to the one's I borrowed. However, the ones I posted look as real as what my actual eyes were seeing. I MUST INVEST IN A CAMERA!!! xo
