It was. I was a little miffed that we couldnt get to the press site on the Air Force Base as that offers a view from just 1.5 miles away. The beach was about 4.5 miles from the Launch pads and the rocket passed right by us.
My only wish would have been for less in the way of clouds, but then I can hope for better conditions next time. Shuttle launches in a few days...
