My husband and I love to drive this route especially before sunset. This is NASA Parkway West which is also known as NASA Causeway West. The NASA Parkway West crosses the Indian River Lagoon. There is a bascule bridge (drawbridge) which permits boats on the Inter-coastal Waterway to pass through the causeway. About 2 miles from the bridge is the property of the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and the John F. Kennedy Space Center. See the building at the far end, that is already the entrance of the Kennedy Space Center. I took the picture of the ditch to point the location where, at times wild gators love to sunbathing.
I took this picture right at the intersection of NASA Parkway and Space Commerce Way which is also known as Government Road. The Merritt Island peninsula is at its widest in this area extending towards Cape Canaveral.
The public cannot go beyond the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. As I have said, that building at the far end. The general public is not permitted beyond this area. A NASA security only permits access to authorized tour buses, Kennedy Space Center staff and supply vehicles only.
There are tour buses allowed to access the Vehicle Assembly Building and the Saturn V Center area. If you visited my blog more often, you already saw the pictures of what I am referring to. Anyway, the photo above was taken along the Space Commerce Way. Again, there are wild gators seen floating on the ditch. If you happen to pass by here, just look closely and for sure, you will see one or two.
I saw a big gator right on this end. I did not take my camera at that time though.
On the exact location above, I saw this floating on the water ^_^
This wild gator probably about 8 or 9 feet. It is definitely bigger than I am. I used the zoom of my camera. I took the photo from inside the car along the road.
This ditch was taken along Space Commerce Way. I saw baby gators swimming here. That's all for now folks. Thanks for stopping by.
