It was really cool standing on the big wooden deck with hundreds of other folks waiting for the shuttle to fly by. Besides all of us on the boat, there were lots of small boats waiting to watch, too! This is just a few, I wanted to get a shot of the city skyline. There were dozens and dozens of small boats off to the right --
The captain sounded the incredibly loud horn at noon, scaring us all half to death. The next time he sounded the horn, it was because the shuttle was spotted on the horizon.
Sadly, I don't have a great picture because it flew right across the sun and was impossible to photograph, but we all yelled and waved and applauded and it was off to LAX. So while I was on the boat, I headed off to check it out.
