We arrived in Vero Beach to meet our friends with whom we spent the week. Our dinner at Captain Hiram's was super-yummy; the view from their balcony is below. Nice view.
 May 14 -- Harbor at Captain Hiram's
I finally got to see the Atlantic Ocean! We moved away from the ocean when I was 11, and I was back only once. I got to spend the entire week there this time.
 May 15 -- Atlantic wave line
Monday morning. 8:56 a.m. It was truly surprising how quickly Endeavor shot up into the sky. Within minutes, she was out of view. Then several minutes later, we heard the sound (we were about an hour away from Kennedy Space Center).
 May 16 -- Endeavor blasts off
The water was warm, inviting us to come on in and play.
 May 17 -- Wave action
Fernando and I had a date night, a slow evening walk on the beach at our resort. Of course Ellie came with us! These are my footprints, just before they were washed away.
 May 18 -- Seashore footprints
Sunsets were gorgeous, and we weren't even facing west! Below, I was looking north up the coast.
 May 19 -- Sunset along Vero Beach
Though I took several nice macros of flowers, I chose the below image since I love the back lighting and how it illumines the berries on the bush.
 May 20 -- Sunlit berries
Next week, I'll round out my vacation with a few more shots from Florida, and then it's back to the Prairie State!
