I recently attended a Texas Realtors conference in South Padre Island. As I boarded the plane to SPI, I noticed there was a lot of international passengers on the plane.
As we were seated, I sat next to a man from China.
We both made small talk, and I asked him why he was flying to SPI. He informed me that he was watching the Rocket Launch. I had been so caught up making sure all of the loose ends of real estate were tied up before my trip, that I didn't even realize about the rocket launch.
He told me it would launch at 8:30am. My conference started at 9:00am. So I thought I might capture a glimpse before the conference.
The next morning, I decided to go to a local coffee shop, to grab a quick coffee before the conference.
I sat down at the small round table and was just about to take a sip of coffee, when it happened.
The windows started to shake, and a loud low noise began.
Was it an earthquake?
Then I thought it was someone driving by with loud bass in their car.
No that wasn't it. It was the rocket!
I ran outside, left my wallet and coffee in the shop. (I know I know, I shouldn't have done that)
But I just started recording on my social media stories. People always want to know what you're doing when you're out of town.
But then, the Tyler Newspaper reached out to me, and wanted an interview! I was the ONLY person from Tyler, Texas to witness this first hand. How cool was that?
You never know when you're going to see a historical event, when you are doing the everyday ordinary things.
