The place was hopping and for the first time in all the times we have been going there, we had to stand in a long line that reached far outside the entrance. Fortunately it had stopped raining by then. We really lucked out as earlier we might have gotten drenched. I am happy to say the line went very quickly.
I remembered not to take a purse with me as I knew there would be a hold up waiting for it to be searched. We almost had to wait as Bill had a small camera case, but a security guard on the other side shouted for us to go over. He checked the camera case and was so good natured to both of us, I was really impressed. Most of the people in line were 'younger folks' and I think the fellow was being very considerate of our age.
We bumped into him a few other times in other areas, and he always greeted us with a big smile. He was outstandingly charming. I wish I had thought to get his name as he would be the kind of person I would write to the management about, and congratulate them on hiring such a genuinely nice person on their detail.
This is the section where the Space Shuttle Discovery is exhibited.
We took a whole lot of photos which I will share another time, but I wanted to get this post out tonight before I call it a day.
