Great second breakfast! I'm so looking forward to an IHOP or Denny's breakfast. The cheese in a can isn't something we've tried, I guess it's no different to the little plastic pots of it they have for pretzels, which we love.

Great day. We love Cicis Pizza too. We've never tried takeaway only eat in. Takeaway looks good value. I am looking for a few takeaway options to eat by the pool.
Do you collect from cicis or do they deliver?

Have just caught up.

A shame about the delay, but what a great insurance policy. A very long travel day for you all but you made it there quicker than expected

And we love breakfast at ihop, in fact we love breakfast anywhere while we are on holiday

I look forward to reading more.

Day 3 Kennedy Space Centre

Before I start today's adventures, I have to tell you about our middle of the night excitement.. Easy now..!

The Space X Falcon Heavy rocket launch was scheduled for 11.30pm the previous evening from Kennedy Space Centre. We were hoping to stay up to watch it, as we'd previously seen a spectacular shuttle launch in April 2010, but we were just too tired. Anyhow, the launch had been delayed for various reasons and didn't take off until about 2.30am aren't we glad we didn't try to stay awake..!

It was the middle of the night and we were sleeping soundly, when all of a sudden we were rudely woken up by a massive double bang and the house and windows started shaking and rattling..! We didn't know what was going on and leapt from the bed, only to realise it was the twin sonic boom caused by the two booster rockets returning to earth following the Space X launch 70 miles away! We ran to check that the kids were ok they never even budged and were still out cold! The two of us on the other-hand, nearly had heart attacks..!



It was then that we decided we'd go to Kennedy Space Centre the next day and lodge a formal complaint (joking we were going anyway..!)

We slept until 5.30am pleasantly surprised not bad for this early in the holiday.

We had breakfast in the villa. We had bagels and cereal again, but this morning, we also had some fruit and we were going to sample Smore's Poptarts. These were very sweet with the texture of cardboard but surprisingly, not as bad as you think they're going to be..!





Yes, these are recycled photos - you will more than likely see them again..!





(They look exactly like they do on the box - same texture too..!)

On arrival in Kennedy Space Centre, we decided to have a snack before we started our day. We went to the Rocket Garden Cafe (a self service eatery order at a window) We had a tea, a coffee, a Mountain Dew, two warm cinnamon rolls (one was free) and a chocolate muffin. Cost - $15. This was a lovely spot - loads of covered outdoor seating with plenty of fans and a large netting around the perimeter of the seating area, to deter birds.



In hindsight, we should have taken the wrappers off the food.. We're learning..!

As we were eating, a staff member came around handing out little bags of grapes to all the children sitting at the tables. It was a nice touch. No photo though sorry!

After doing the bus tour and visiting the Saturn V area, we returned to the Rocket Garden Cafe for lunch. We had two kids chicken nuggets these came with a fruit bag and an apple juice and we also ordered two sides of fries. We shared the lot. The portions of fries were really big and more than enough for us all to share. The kids said the chicken nuggets were tasty but crispy. This was typical park fare and filled a gap. Cost - $27.78 not bad for what we got.



On the way home from Cape Canaveral, we decided to head to Millers Alehouse on the 192 for dinner at about 7.00pm. Just as we arrived the heavens opened and we were treated to a spectacular lightning display. Once inside, we were seated straight away in a booth and drinks were ordered. DH had a Bud Lite, I had a glass of red wine, DS1 had a lemonade and DS2 had a coke (is Pepsi ok..?)

I had a Zinger Salad with cajun ranch dressing on the side, DH had the Prime Rib French Dip sandwich with fries, DS1 had Sweet Chili Zingers with a side of rice and DS2 had the kids hot dog with a side of apple slices. We also got a side of fries for the table (me ).









This meal was excellent. DH said it was the best sandwich he'd ever had (top 3 anyway) a big claim on Day 3, but it turned out to be one of, if not, the best meal of our holiday. (As you can tell from the half eaten food photos above.. ) Service was really good server was friendly and efficient but not constantly in our faces.

We decided not to have a desert as we were pretty full. We had M&M Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches back in the villa, so we decided we'd wait. Meal cost $57 excluding tip and kids eat free on Tuesdays.



The evening finished with drinks around the pool watching the last of the lightning.

Total food spends today - $99.78 excluding tips
Overall food spends - 36.26 & $305.24 (excluding tips)

We collected from Cici's but you can have it delivered with UberEats for a few dollars more. We didn't bother, because it was so close. We have a couple more take away meals around the pool later in the holiday - hope to get a few more days up soon..!

Thanks for the insurance info. Have never been to Millers, but food looks lovely. Imagine what it must be like v close to launchpad on takeoff. It would blow your wig off, Mr President.

Looking forward to following along. X
