Bahri Jeddah Visits Port of Pensacola for First Time 

Port of Pensacola had a unique visitor last week. Did you happen to catch this big ship sail into Pensacola Bay on May 31?
Bahri Jeddah visited the port the first time. The vessel was used to offload some critical components for a major local manufacturer. She is a 720-foot Ro-Ro Cargo Ship.
It was quite the treat to have her stop by Pensacola even if only for a few days.
