Stetson part 3

Finally the weather turned, I am sure that will make some of you happy. We started the day in the 80's but by the afternoon it was in the high 60's and rainy.

We stayed up rather late celebrating the Duke victory over UNC. We sat on the beach telling stories and having a generally great time. It was without a doubt the best evening of the trip.

This afternoon (classes end right after lunch) we headed to New Smyrna Beach so that we could watch the launch of the space shuttle Atlantis. It was amazing. Right up until launch time we did not know if it was going to go, because the weather was ifffy --- but at 2:45 pm we watched the biggest sky rocket go up in the sky. Even Mark who is Mr. 4th of July thought it was unbelievable.

Tomorrow we head back home. Wiser, more relaxed and ready for the snow.
