Sunday, Sunday

Just because on Saturday i reinforced my thesis about working harder on weekends, Sunday i ended up taking the day off, and the thesis was down the drain. No problem at all.

Started the day off on Sunday with a long and delicious Skype call with the family (it was Father’s day in Brazil):

Followed by an equally delicious one with my father, in which we remembered some great times spent together in the past:

Raquel demanded that i did not do any work then, and didn’t have any difficulty to comply.

So i took the inflatable (still need to post about this one) for a ride along the canal that connects the lake with the ocean (there is a Lock in between). There are many shipyards there, and it is always a great place for boat-watching:

I really like commercial boats ... their forms and their names make me wonder the places and seas they sail to

What about Akutan's classic look? Her colors, forms and texture are just so similar to the plastic scale models i used to build with my dad when i was a kid!

Alaska Mist is almost ready at the shipyard right across the lake. When i got here she was all wrapped up. I wonder if i will have the opportunity to see her back in the water before we leave here next week.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, what about this tiny sailboat? The smallest i remember to have seen.

The way back to the lake .. i was told Amazon's headquarters are located on the left bank of the channel on this picture.

Back aboard Pesto, i had time to take my shower, prepare diner, and was ready just in time to watch the Super Moon rise.

  1. Estas fotos merecem um prêmio (Pulitzer?). Não vi cobertura tão perfeita e emocionante do evento astronômico em nenhuma outra mídia. Parabéns!!!

    Esta página merece ser divulgada.

  2. Hahaha Pai … Assim vc me deixa acanhado 🙂
    Mas vc sabe que aquele por do sol que eu menciono no post, eu acho que foi ainda mais espetacular que a Super Moon de ontem.
    Beijo

  3. Quando vi o Akutan e o Alaska Mist me lembrei de uma reportagem que li que comentava a caracteristicas de construcao de navios na epoca da 2a guerra. E nela diza que se voce quiser saber se um navio é americano, basta ver o costado. Se as chapas estiverem chupadas pra dentro das cavernas, como um cachorro magro, o navio e americano. A razao? Faltava aço na epoca e os gringos reduziam a espessura das chapas.
