Here are the people on the pier waiting for the launch........My Shots..
There she goes!
Feb 24,2011..Thursday...We waited 6 hours for the Last Space Shuttle Discovery to launch. We were at Titusville(at 10am) along the water sitting on the pier to watch it..Liftoff at 4:50 pm.. then a 4 1/2 hour traffic jam. They said it was a 50 mile backup from here to Orlando. People just abandoned their cars along the highway and walked to the shoreline to see it. This was an awesome view..just a long time to get out of here. Stop and crawl traffic even on Rt 95 backed up for 20 miles. The morning paper said there were 200,000 cars on the highway after the shuttle take off(I believe them!!) Yes!! I would do it again!!
