I'd like to continue the review of our travels in 2020 where we left off in June. That's when Florida began to re-open.

So, earlier we talked about the SpaceX manned launch. After it was scrubbed from a mid-week affair to a Saturday, we took the plunge and decided to head to the Space Coast. I think this was one of our most impromptu and funnest trips ever. We called an old standby, the LaQuinta Inn & Suites...
