Pirates!!!


After the recent posts about boardings in the night, you perhaps thought this post would continue along that line.  But no, it is just the annual Pirates Cruise the United States Power Squadron puts on at Sand Island on the Columbia River at St. Helens.

This is the FIRST time I have been able to fully participate and enjoy.  It will most likely be the last one we will attend, as we hope next year at this time to be 'up north'.




Captain Al regaled us with pirate tales on Friday night, after which followed marshmallow roasting and S'more building.






On Saturday, we were overrun by pirates, who have grown much  in the past year.










There was a near mutiny, when the girls attempted to get control of the boat.









There was much swash buckling,




There was a treasure hunt, with a map to follow.


Bad Pirates were quickly dispatched.




And Salty Toe's treasure chest full of booty was eventually pulled from the sand!
