Beyond Rocket Launches on Florida’s Space Coast

Based on my social media check-ins over the last few years, you’d think I was an official part-time resident of Brevard County, also known as Florida’s Space Coast. Why?

Yeah, It Was Pretty Cool Kayaking Alongside Giraffes at the Brevard Zoo

During my Florida kayaking adventures over the years, I’ve paddled through mangrove tunnels, alongside alligators and over springs and manatees. I was giddy with excitement when I slipped into a boat at the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne because I was about to do something I didn’t realize was possible in Florida – kayak alongside giraffes. Now, I’m not talking about animatronic animals but living, breathing giraffes native to Africa.

Have you ever attended a star party? When I worked at the Furnace Creek Resort in Death Valley National Park, one of the things we did for guests was place telescopes on the roof of the Furnace Creek Inn and offered evening stargazing.

leeping paradise found at the NYLO Hotel in New York City. As hard as I fought, my internal alarm clock woke me at 5:30 a.m. Peering through the slivers of my weary eyelids, I could tell it was still dark and definitely not time to begin my day. I didn’t need to be anywhere until 11 a.m. which meant hopping in a cab around 9:30 a.m.
