weekend endeavor and adventure.

*written on 9.25.12*

Recovering from a slight headache from last night’s drinking debacle, I’m not really in the mood to write very much today. However, pictures, I figured, would suffice. Besides, one way to document your life is via photos, right?

One of our friends who works in connection with NASA told us about the Space Shuttle Endeavor’s flyover California. Well, it turns out that one of the coolest and nerdiest seats in the area was over at Ames Research Center. We got access to view the flyover on Moffett Airfield. I’m so glad that we got to experience a piece of scientific history.

Getting up at 4am in the morning to surround myself among a bunch of space fanatics was totally worth it. Seeing the Endeavor about 500 ft away was definitely something that will only happens once in my lifetime. Shortly after this endeavor (no pun intended),  it was off to Yosemite to meet up with Steph and Alex.

It was definitely a much shorter trip than our last visit, but it was just as fun. The views are always breathtaking, and the fresh air you get out in Tuolumne is so worth the drive to get there. Only problem is… the high altitude knows how to kick my butt. Plus, it doesn’t help that my anemia makes it harder for me to breathe. *sigh* One day, it’s my hope that I’ll become adjusted to the altitude to the point where I won’t notice the difference.

Now, I’m relaxing on California’s seaside.

Yup, this is the good life. Well, up until next week, of course. 😉
