Westport Pirates

We decided to venture out and look for pirates today. We got to see a few, but it was the boats we came to see.This is the Lady Washington, originally built 20 years ago to illustrate the local history of Gray's Harbor.

You can catch the silliness here. I really wanted to see the Pirates Parade, and I did notice the firetruck and another float two blocks away, but I didn't realize we missed the parade. Note to Organizers: if you have a parade; tell people where it is. Oh, and don't leave your floats parked on the street we're not supposed to be looking at.

I hadn't realized alien abductions were such a problem in Westport.
We did go look at the ocean! We waved at RevPaperboy!

Beautiful ships!

Well duh, of COURSE alien abductions were a part of piracy! Just generally in the Bermuda Triangle, but you know those pesky aliens, a little off track and there you go, they're hanging out in Westport.

Great photos! It looks like you had fun!

The ships were lovely! But it was so danged windy, I felt I'd blow over standing on the piers! I kept repeating to myself: "Don't step back. Do not step back."

I just happened to glance out the window and I thought I saw someone waving, it tough to tell who it was through all the rain here over the weekend, but now I know. ; )
