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.
