When I was trying to figure out what today’s post should be about, I figured I’d make it a lead in to what I hope to have tomorrow. Early tomorrow morning, at 3:44 am EDT the first privately built spacecraft to dock with the International Space Station will attempt to launch. I was going to use the above photo of a photo I took 4 years ago as a clever lead in. A rocket launching behind the now defunct Canaveral Light House…. or so I thought.
This is a photo I took, with an old camera phone, of a photo that hangs in the museum at the Ponce Inlet Light House. From what I remember, under the photo was a brief story of the light house and how it fell into disrepair. I decided in order to have as accurate information as I could I would do a little research before posting. I was very pleasantly surprised when I found out that, at the time I took this photo of a photo, a restoration project was already under way! This light house, and it’s grounds are being restored… much like the Ponce Inlet Light House was. This will make 3 restored light houses with in driving distance of my home, including the St. Augustine Light House.
I still intend, to have something regarding the SpaceX Dragon launch for tomorrow, but now I need to find out if and/or how I can go explore the Canaveral Light House… more info regarding it here http://canaverallight.org/
