We cruised a bit through the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, and then bopped around some of the outside areas of the Kennedy Space Center. We've visited the Space Center several times in the past, but it was getting late on this particular day and the facility was already closed.
But even passing through on a lazy afternoon, headed into dusk, you can still see plenty of awesome birds, alligators, deer, and the occasional armadillo.
And don't forget, the one, the only Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach. It's part surfers' paradise, part kitschy souvenir headquarters. But, it's always worth a fun stop! (interior photos in the next post)
