Mexican Fan Palm in Bloom

Fan Palm BloomOur largest Mexican Fan Palm bloomed this week.  The first time ever.  The bees sure like the flowers.  I've read that the fruit is edible, which means a new beach cocktail will soon be in the making.

Interesting Vessel

LCACThis passed by about two miles off-shore early today.  It is a Navy LCAC (Landing Craft Air Cushion), from the Panama City Naval Base.  It was so loud, I could hear it from inside.  It must be extremely loud on-board.

Pre-Fourth Fireworks

Beach LightningWe had a spectacular fireworks show last night from a squall line passing to the south of us.  Time to get a wider angled lens so I can catch all the bolts racing across the clouds.
