At Canaveral Lock near Port Canaveral, Florida

We arrived at the Great Outdoors RV Resort a couple days ago and went down to Port Canaveral to explore the set up for the cruise we will be taking next week. Along the way, we discovered the Canaveral Lock.

This lock connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Indian River. It is also used to move the solid rocket boosters used by the shuttle back to Cape Canaveral. Here you can see some of the boats using the lock.

One of the neatest things about the lock are the many manatees, fish, and dolphins that you can see. These were amazing!

This guy is waiting for the lock to open and sure enough, he zipped right through with the boats.

Of course, we had to check out the cruise ships docked nearby. This is the Carnival Glory and the Disney cruise ships.

We will be taking this ship, the Glory, next week as Erica and Brian get married on board. Very exciting!
