On this Memorial day, we are sad to report we were missing Capt. As the day before, Captain made it down to the beach with a borrowed scooter (due to his still healing bionic enhancement procedure), we are left to speculate whether said device could withstand the strains of warp speed in his upcoming run. Upon inspection, scooter did not appear to meet specs needed for such a mission, and Valhalla knows there are no miracle workers here. But alas we all know, Capt'n. will be Capt'n. Full speed ahead. Stay tuned.
Planning continues on Klode krew head quarters. Under the supervision of Kahuna, Handy Man Hank has taken the helm. They have already produced a scaled down model. See the picture of them brain storming in the hard at work planning stage. I'm not exactly sure about the amenities, but it of course must have a Killepitsch dispenser of some sort, which is one thing I'm sure all can agree on. Other suggestions might include; sauna, wet suit rack, full wet bar, rescue dinghy's. For input suggestions contact Showgirl.
The first boaters of the season were congregating in our swimming area already by the end of the swim. And they were less than courteous. As Magic Mike reported none of them offered up any refreshments. Which made him begin to contemplate piracy. And I don't blame him. One of them surely must have some rum.
As the season is now upon us, so far the waters have been unseasonably warm, this may be a good omen of things to come. As I also spied a cormorant dive slightly behind Itch, I believe there is reason for high hopes. Cormorants, in some Scandinavian areas, are considered a good omen; in particular, in Norwegian tradition spirits of those lost at sea come to visit their loved ones disguised as cormorants. As we winded things up, all toasted in memorium to all those who have served.
