Brer and Jessica Rabbit
Two people couldn’t be more different. They met at a transit dock along the Panama Canal on their way to different cities in South America. Brer from Rome, Indiana and Jessica from Berlin, New Hampshire. Brer thought he had bought a one way pass on a banana boat until the operations manager threw him and his luggage off in Panama. But, there is where he met Jessica.
Jessica a wealthy stockbroker from New York was on layover from her cruise around the world. A dream she had worked for years to travel the world by ship. Brer a poet and Jack of all trades had a similar wonder lust for the world, but was traveling by fishing, banana and cargo ships to see the world. He and Jessica immediately clicked. They shared similar dreams and a similar sense of humor. While walking along the docks they came upon a retired French ship’s captain sitting beside his last vessel, an oil carrier for the French Navy. He told them that he was done with the sea and that he would be selling his ship.
The inquisitive Brer and Jessica asked “How much”? Because the ship was old and he just wanted to recoup some of his costs he told them $12,000 US. Jessica looked at Brer and took out her check book and wrote the Captain a check for $12,000.
Brer and Jessica fell in love. Spent a year in Panama fixing the vessel and now travel the world. They port at major cities for months at a time using a crane on the bow of the ship to off load artwork from incoming ships for major Museums around the world.
