Last week, we asked our readers to share a photo on our Facebook’s Timeline of their favorite spot on the Space Coast where they “pause and awe.” (You can read the first blog post here). We were blown away by the beautiful photos everyone shared with us!

Everywhere we turn there is something trying to grab our attention and distract us from slowing down and just enjoying where we are and all the beauty around us. So, stop whatever you’re doing and enjoy these breathtaking photos of places just around your neighborhood.

A huge thank you to everyone who shared their photo with us!
