Ship sighting in St. Andrew's Bay Saturday, August 2nd, 2013

Today we went to the Farmer's Market in St. Andrew's Bay like we usually do on Saturday mornings and we saw this huge freighter docked over in the deep water side of the bay so we took some pictures and then went on-line to see what info we could get about the ship. The vessel was named the Bravante V. It apparently was launched (and built) here in Panama City, the following is copied from the on-line posting we found:

"Eastern Shipbuilding Group, Inc. christened and launched the M/V Bravante V for Boldini S.A. of Brazil. The event was held on March 21, 2013 at Eastern’s Nelson Street facility with hundreds of Eastern employees and guests.

Attending were Renato and Regina Nascimento, William Wueman and William Grutter along with several members that traveled from Brazil witnessing the launch of the first of five Platform Supply Vessels under contract with Eastern.

Mr. Nacimento’s wife Regina had the honor of christening the vessel. Eastern’s President, Brian D’Isernia said a few words about the bright future of Shipbuilding hear in the United States, providing more local jobs and the Offshore Marine Industry prior to the launch. Father Roy Marien of Saint John’s Catholic Church located in Panama City, Florida performed the blessing of the vessel."

 This is the video we found on YouTube showing the launch of the freighter:

And here are some pictures we took today of the vessel up close at the dock:

Before and After

Here are before and after photos of our grandson, Asher.  He turned one on August 1st.

It's My Birthday!

Before my haircut.

And after...I'm much happier now than when I was getting my hair cut.

Isn't it amazing how different a "first haircut" can take them from "baby" to "little man".  :-)

I hope everyone enjoys the weekend.  We plan to enjoy a breakfast of french toast at a new coffee shop in St. Andrews Bay called Chez Amavida and kick around the "cove" area of St. Andrews Bay. I'll be sure to take some pics of the area to share with you.

Tomorrow's Breakfast  and don't forget this

Ahhhh now I am ready to talk!
