Palermo just left dock, 10 minutes ago.

Next stop Halifax Nova Scotia, on Aug 3rd.




Next stop Halifax!
Will, do you want me to go down and make sure Elf is OK. Maybe get him out of the crate for a little run around the docks! It's probably a might stuffy in that crate.

Briaan, You might take along some things so he can 'freshen' up a little before he meets his new owner. You know, Seafoam, some 91 Octane, and maybe some synthetic motor oil. Might want to get a 'pine' air freshener so he can get acclimated to his new surroundings!

He will probably wobbly for a bit until gets his land legs back, I just hope he isn't allergic to Canadian air, he may have move down here.

:rofl2: :rofl2:

Funny you mention that. I was shaking my head at myself earlier today. For the last few days, every
time I get near the computor, I have to stop, and check on Palermo's position. You know, just check
in to see, and make sure that there aren't any other ships in the way.
Geeze, I'm almost as bad as when I was an expecting father.

Earlier tonight, I had this screen on the computor for quite some time.

I was watching the Olympic thing in the background. The wife walked up, patted me
on the shoulder, and said, "Are all those boats escorting Elf?"

BTW, all is good. Palermo and ELF, are getting out of the heavy traffic. Now, as long as we can
sneak past the seamonsters, and Uboats, Halifax should be a breeze. :dancingbanana:

Tell your better half Alan said that was fantastic! :rolling:

How are they avoiding the "Edge"?

I think that it'll be OK...The ship already made it past Penzance without any Pirate trouble!

I hope you supplied the little guy with a life vest, a warning beacon, and a GPS locator. Just in case the ship starts taking on water.

And maybe some dramamine, this is probably his first voyage by sea, and he get seasick. Can't have him throwing up in the crate.

No pirates here lately but Godzilla was spotted by the east coast fleet a few days ago headed for the mid Atlantic.
