Pirates Storm the White’s Ferry

As soon as I woke up there was a message from Melissa inviting me over to prepare for the picnic at her house. I was bummed it was raining, but I loaded up my pie and my costume and headed her way. She made some coffee and waffles and we got all pirated up. We also did a last minute equipment check for the photo booth.


Photo app check!

The rain finally stopped and we loaded the cars and headed out to the pre picnic run Alex and Hilary had set up. We were the first to arrive so Melissa parked DOMO and hopped in My Precious and we drove over to the Starbucks drive thru.


Melissa livestreamed our coffee run on Periscope. And BTW you know they’ve seen some odd sights when 2 pirate chicks in a flowered MINI with daisy wheels visit the Starbucks thru and they don’t even give you a second glance.

Alex arrived and we took a few pictures to share with our followers.


Just trying to make sure any new club members could spot us in the Harris Teeter parking lot.

Others started arriving and we all enjoyed looking at each other’s cars.


Craig baron had a pirate badge and a ninja pirate shirt!

We were all really thrilled when Becky showed up for her first club event!


Welcome to the club, Becky!

I tried to remove some of the brake dust from my daisy wheels.


Once upon a time I didn’t care about tires or wheels. I don’t think I’d ever even said the words “brake dust” out loud.

Alex and Hilary led the drivers meeting and Alex explained the route.


Drivers meeting. No run sheets needed since it was a simple route.

I was really concerned about preserving my pirate hair since the sun came out and my top went down.

I took off my adorable pirate hat and tried to protect my pirate hair with a pashmina but the brutal heat and relentless sun forced me to give up that plan. Instead I cranked up the AC and rolled up my windows, which was slightly less fun but did preserve the integrity of my look.

When we arrived at the ferry we didn’t make it in time to board, which was great cause that gave us an excuse to get out and take more pictures of our cars.


Captain Alex is leading our charge as we storm the Whites Ferry!

Finally the ferry arrived and we slowly boarded the ship…


Pirates boarding the ship

and prepared to plunder…


I guess the White’s Ferry has been invaded before because having a bunch of pirates on board didn’t seem to upset the captain of that vessel. At all.
