United States Astronaut Hall of Fame

Day two we visited the United States Astronaut Hall of Fame.  This place was very touching to me.  It is a strange thing to visit a place that has such significance in our history and know that I was alive during part of it, yet too young to really remember it.  It was a really neat place that we enjoyed a lot.
From Wikipedia: The United States Astronaut Hall of Fame, located just south of Titusville, Florida, honors American astronauts and features the world's largest collection of their personal memorabilia, focusing on those astronauts who have been inducted into the Hall; as well as Sigma 7, the fifth manned Mercury spacecraft. It is operated as part of the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, 6 miles (9.7 km) to the east on Merritt Island.

After spending time here, we headed out for dinner and ate at the same place that Rich and Donna introduced us to.  Nathan had the giant calzone again.
We headed back to our hotel, and tried to get a good night's sleep so we'd be fresh for our cruise.
