My Adventures – I saw the Odyssey, a Wahoo, and a Kazoo

I would like to take a moment to say “Thank You” to all our service men and women.

My Adventures – I saw the Odyssey, a Wahoo, and a Kazoo.

Let tell you about our weather. It has been raining buckets for days here in the panhandle of Florida, but like my hubby says, it never rains on the Funman. So, we began our adventure in the morning by going to the marina in downtown Pensacola.

The Funman and I started Fourth of July by shooting the Odyssey, a member of the Sea Shepherd fleet and Ocean Alliance, which was in town saving the whales! Yes there are whales in the Gulf of Mexico.

 Ocean Alliance collects a broad spectrum of data on whales and ocean life relating particularly to toxicology, behavior, bio-acoustics, and genetics. From that data we work with our scientific partners to advise educators and policy makers on wise stewardship of the oceans to: reduce pollution, prevent the collapse of marine mammal populations, maintain human access to fish and other sea life, and promote ocean and human health.

Ocean Alliance is concerned with the conservation of whales and all sea life, as well as human impacts on the marine environment. Through the Ocean Alliance program the Voyage of the Odyssey, we were able to focus on measuring the concentrations of synthetic contaminants that adversely affect the world’s oceans and its marine species.

Then, on to the Blue Wahoo’s baseball game. The Blue Wahoos are the farm team for  the Cincinnati Reds. They are new to the circuit, just being born in 2012. They were Organization of the Year, Ballpark of the Year and Executive of the Year for 2012.

They have a brand new stadium built on the shores of Pensacola Bay. They are currently ranked third in the Southern League Standings.

A lot of the workers were dressed and showing their patriotism for all the baseball fans.

I was the first one to get a ball, but Funman manged to get one too. We happily add them to our bucket of balls that we collect. What do we do with them? We look at them and say, “Oh, look at our pretty bucket of balls.”

Good times, good beer and good food. WE WON!!!!

For some chuckles, take a look at these Supernatural videos:

  1. Very cool, sherry. Love the photos! And don’t forget that the killer in my first crime thriller, ABSOLUTION, came from WAHOO. Nebraska, that is.

  2. Another ball! I remember the game we went to in New York where I swear the ball chased you down the ramp! You came up with it and we all just laughed! Cole still has that one on his shelf! Wish I could have went.
    Hey, it’s Sunday and I see a patch of blue sky, finally!
    Looking forward to your posts here. I didn’t realize there were whales in the acutal Gulf!

    • That ball game was great too. Haven’t seen any blue sky here today. Hubby is working a game today, hope it doesn’t get rained out. “fingers crossed”

    • Thanks Anna. It was. Hope your Fourth and the weekend went well. ^_^
