We went on on another cruise with Disney,we left from Port Canaveral, I saw this on the side of the bank near where the cruise ship was leaving,
USS Nathanael Greene (SSBN-636), a James Madison-class submarine, was one of three ships of the United States Navy to be named for Major General Nathanael Greene, who served in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. Both ships of the name USS General Greene were also named for him.
Nathanael Greene's sail has been restored and is now on display in Port Canaveral, Florida as a memorial to the original 41 fleet ballistic missile submarines.
We had a coast guard ship escort us out. I never seen that before....but it is logical, a cruise ship is a very soft and squishy target. I was talking to Old NFO about it while the ship was leaving port.
and we had a stop over in Nassau in the Bahamas:
Nassau // is the capital, largest city, and commercial centre of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. The city has a population of 248,948 (2010 census), 70 percent of the entire population of the Bahamas (353,658). Lynden Pindling International Airport, the major airport for the Bahamas, is located about 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) west of Nassau city centre, and has daily flights to major cities in the United States, the Caribbean, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The city is located on the island of New Providence, which functions much like a business district. Nassau is the site of the House of Assembly and various judicial departments and was considered historically to be a stronghold of pirates. The city was named after Nassau, Germany in honor of William of Orange-Nassau.
Nassau's modern growth began in the late eighteenth century, with the influx of thousands of American Loyalists and their slaves to the Bahamas following the American Revolutionary War. Many of them settled in Nassau (then and still the commerce capital of the Bahamas) and eventually came to outnumber the original inhabitants.
We walked around and had a good time despite the humidity, the rain kept threatened to make an appearance. We visited a few shops
We saw several street performers and it was neat seeing their performance and dodging the people pushing cuban cigars and other cigarello's, apparently cannibus is still very popular.
And on a different note, I saw something on a suburban at the hotel we were staying at,....
