I am Shipwrecked

Mrs. Mutiny pulled a fast one on me this afternoon. I took one of the barnacles with me at 5AM to do a rum run on the Hudson. All things were fine.

However I went back out for another run this afternoon. I also had to get some dish detergent for Mrs. Mutiny to scrub the barnacles of the serving platters in her kitchen.

A keg of of Harpoon IPA went flat at Dockside. I stayed til they fixed it. Then went out on a rough sea excursion up to the island and back.

I got soaked..........so I sailed back to Dockside or a rum and coke and to check on the IPA. All was fine I went t Sewart's got the detergent and when I came home Mrs. Mutiny informed me of her choosing to go to an adults only BBQ at her cousins in Po'town.

Her excuse........................"I work Mondays anyway and the party is the same as my work hours"

ARRRGGHHHHHHH...............Capt. Wayneright has walked his own plank today!

The Rum is Flowing

5AM EDT: Set sail on the river looking for rum pirates, and maybe a bar open early, on this sunny morning. Not a sole (human or fish) in sight. Caught the end of the flow north. Headed north to the former Yanni's (now Dockside Grill). Figured since they had a band playing on Sunday afternoon maybe they would still be playing this morning. No such luck.

After leaving the safety zone of the flats we just floated back down to the launch site. Encountered no gunfire until we got to Stewart's and saw possible rum pirates in camouflage fatigues. They jumped in their truck when they saw us and took off.

May have to head back out on the river this afternoon just in case.

Tivoli Bays: A-Maze-ing

It was a Mother of a day at work so I set sail at noon. Headed to River Connection in Hyde Park for some new shades and water booties.

After taking in the sites at the store, decided I still would like a paddle shop of me own, and set my directional for Tivoli Bays.

I have heard that Tivoli Bays is a nice spot to paddle. Good thing I checked the tide because when low you could get stuck in the mud for several hours as much of the waterways in the bays are shallow.
I paddled through a seemingly endless maze of small flows and never made it to the river!

No big deal though! The scenery was beautiful the smell, swampy, and fish everywhere.
A large carp or large mouth bass almost landed in me dinghy when I came too close!

No pirates stealing rum here. They would get lost if they tried. And we took no fire either.

Settled in at Dockside in Athens with my land lubbing four wheeler: Bad scene Mom's Day buffet for $19.99..............no bar menu for for us regular rusty scuppers.

They did have rum though!

Happy Mothers' Day you Garbage Scows!
