Today’s Photo:  The Swing Arm

Many adventures begin with a last view of something.  Sometimes it is a wave at family when leaving for college, a last view of the shore while sailing into the blue ocean or the last feel of solid ground under your feet before beginning an ascent rock climbing.  No matter what the adventure, there is always a point where you get that feeling of the start of a journey.  Since memory is a visual thing, I can only imagine what those memories look like.  For the astronauts of the Apollo missions, this was one of their last views before beginning the journey to space.  This is the swing arm that carried the astronauts to where they were strapped into a rocket to boost them to the moon.  I wonder if this is one of the memories that those astronauts still carry with them today?
