We meant of course to write a blog way sooner, but there is always something going on in our pirate-life. Besides of not having access to any well-functioning computer to write on – this is really the first day since our last post, I’ve had the time to sit down for a couple of hours. We’ve had guests and people to meet, a runaway cat to find, been busy getting our pirate-supermarket business going, and not to forget; a fantastic ship to take care of.
We’ve just sent off our so far youngest crew-member on the bus back home. We named him Småblæik. And there is still a few hours before we get a new crewmember boarding for the week or weeks to come. We’ve also had a short visit from another pirate, but I won’t really say he has left us, yet, since most of his belongings are still in his tent. The cat took off too. He has been gone for five days now, probably hunting down the village-cats around.
FF Harry is doing good. He has not shown us any symptoms of trouble, which is good because we really need him to do his job as a merchant ship. We are now officially ready and have already been delivering beer and simple food to canoeists around the lake we are currently occupying. We do of course have some pretty steep prices, but then again we have had 4 pirates and a ship to pay for and the paddlers, mostly Germans, may, of course, feel free to paddle the 8 hours it would take them to get to the closest supermarket.
What else… There has been so much really! It’s hard to explain everything in one post like this. But we have been taking some great foto’s and they might do a better job describing the last week or two than we can manage in the amazing heat we are experiencing. Also, I should really be helping out with the cleaning of the ship and then go look for the cat. Again. 🙂
