The finishing point

Saturday April 26, 2003.
I tolerated Interstate 75 south for about thirty minutes before peeling off onto the smaller and slower state road 441 for an easier run down to Ocala, the equestrian capital of Florida.
I enjoyed an Ocala lunch in a 60's style cafe and then proceeded east on state road 40 through the Ocala National Forest until I reached the Atlantic Ocean at Daytona Beach.
Today was the first time in my life to see the Atlantic Ocean.  It was a sunny Saturday with a full crowd of swimmers and a carnival atmosphere around the boardwalk tourist attractions.
Running low on memory stick capacity in my camera and even lower on tolerance for the harsh beach sunlight, I continued south on Route 1 to my planned destination for the day: Titusville.  Why Titusville?  Because it's right next to NASA's Kennedy Space Centre - home of the space shuttle and the site for all NASA's rocket launches.  I'll be visiting NASA tomorrow.  (I want to report those aliens that I saw in Pensacola Beach yesterday.)
