Vacation, part 3

Friday we planned to visit the "quaint shops" on the Strand and do some seashell hunting in a place that we had found. However, the shopping venues didn't excite us (we didn't see much, if any "quaint shops", so we gathered our shells fairly quickly (it was coooold!), and headed home. We were just outside of Houston when the Mr. decided we should visit NASA while we were there. This was totally unplanned, and neither of us had any real idea where to go, or what we would do when we got there, but away we went. We found where we were going, and had lunch first. We stayed until they closed at 5. Our only regret was that we wished we had arrived even earlier. We listened to a presentation from an astronaut, and took the tram tour, which included seeing parts of the Johnson Space Center and one of the control rooms, along with one of the Saturn V rockets. Of course, we also did as many of the other exhibits as time allowed as well. We learned a lot, and we all had a lot of fun.
