Sunday we drove with the family to the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. We didn’t see any alligators, but we did see roseate spoonbills (kind of like a flamingo but with a funny-looking beak), herons, vultures, and I think flamingoes but they were a little too far away to know for sure (could have been more spoonbills).
Monday the kids and I drove to Kennedy Space Center (KSC) where a full day was not nearly enough time to see all the exhibits. We did see alligators there though! KSC is on the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, too, so there’s a lot of wildlife in the vicinity which can be seen from the bus tour that’s part of the admission price. There’s a bald-eagle’s nest that’s been there for decades and currently has one eaglet (and its parents).
