Growing up in Florida, it was easy to take some of the beautiful bodies of water for granted. We lived near the Indian River and often went out in my father's boat or down to the local marina to watch the boats. We had an incredible view for the Apollo launches along the shore of the river or from the boat. The Playalinda Beach at the Canaveral National Seashore was nearby too and my friends and I used to go there in the summer when we were teenagers. The beach is a rarity in Florida since it still has a a natural shoreline with no hotels or other buildings.
