Thank you for nice words!
yeaph, today is our Independence Day! Exactly 186 years ago, Dom Pedro I, royal prince in charge of the portuguese colony back then, took his sword out of the sheath near the River (where the city of São Paulo is nowadays) and yelled “independence or death!”, being after that declared Dom Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil.
Modern historiography considers that the process of brazilian independence from Portugal started when the portuguese Royal Family first came here, in 1808, running away from Napoleon’s army.

But the truth is that today all vessels bringing a lot of flags (tale a look at my photos) to be part of our celebration!

Hello my friend!

nice to hear you!
Those kind of "helices" use to eletric power in giant towers (propellers) using winds are very common to see here in Santos, only today I have been taked 2 vessels outbound port of Santos with those kind of load.
Almost of them are export to Europe, but North America, Caribe and Brazil (north and northeast) also. I didn´t get today the schedule of this vessel to know where is your her destination my friend! :-D
In a few minutes I will add the another vessel with same load "giant helices"

Hi Rogerio,
this ship is really fully loaded; there are possiblities that BBC Georgia is coming to Montréal whith that king of load; it looks like propellers used on those big tower - i dont know the name for it in english - Éolinenne that can produce electricity. Here in Quebec they are more and more of those kinds of installation.
Do you know the real destination of that quite elegant ship. am i right or wrong?
Your friend from Quebec, Robert08 :-(
