Commencement bay is apparently being invaded by pirate ships as we speak. What is going on? Someone get down there. I'm too lazy.

Seriously...what is that?!! It's been going on for a while. My dogs are flipping out. I looked at the events for today and somehow I can't see this being related to the Peace festival.

Maybe filming a movie?

Kind of a mini "Big Ship" event.

Tis the Buccaneer Bash, a fundraiser for the Tall Ships 08. All I can say, is it's definitely the year to invest in a pirate costume, as both First Night and Tall Ships are taking on the Pirate theme. It's good to be a PIRATE in 08!

Saw one out on the water this morning. Thanks for getting us the 4-1-1 on this, chickadee. Now that you mention it, I've heard of it but remember it was a definitely invite only if you have money kinda' thing.

Some pics showed up over in the Photos section. Though they're mostly of a little pirate boy.

Heard a cool cathedral-like bell toll while out at lunch near the Bridge of Glass today. Sounded beautiful and thought it might be from one of the boats. Are they still here or tied up along the Foss?
