Titusville - Launch, Hoolie admirer and Manatee

The rocket launch glow
The launch last night was delayed for about 1.5 hours. Various problems cropped up but it finally went off with the plus that it was dark at the time. For us, all the launches start with a glow on the horizon followed by the ascent of the rocket. It's always interesting to watch, you never know for sure what's going to happen.

Hoolie has a long list of admirers
Hoolie is fully recovered and after his afternoon romp in the dog park, he was greeted by admirers on the way back. He's always ready to accept adulations. We're happy to have the old Hoolie back again. Now, if we could only stop him from being a dog vacuum cleaner on every little piece of scrap that he sees.

Just show me a drop of water dripping, and here I am...
On the way back to the boat, we saw a manatee sipping water from the exhaust of a powerboat. There are still a few manatees in the marina and they surface whenever there's running water around. Our weather here is due to turn colder for the next three to four days, oh well, it's much colder in New York so I guess that's something.
