Jolly Bonny Anne
Ships blog, Second Life, September '08
TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY!
The sun rises on the
International Talk Like a Pirate Day in the antipodes early - first
up, the crew of the Bonny Anne mounted a pirate attack on
Pondi Beach in Second Life
(after clearing it with the relevant supervisor of course!).
To start the day, the scurvy crew of the Bonny
Anne attacked Sydney Opera House and the BigPond complex on Second
Life. ARRRR it was an adventure to be sure - the crew endured
shark attacks and a maze of treacherous waterways, but they n'er
lost sight of the prize!
The crew of the Bonny Anne comprised
Joetoelickr Larsson as the navigator, and Lucrezia Ceawlin as
quartermaster. Ship's captain, as always, was GaiaGirl.
A crew of scallywags and n'er do wells!
Navigator Larsson's knowledge of these waters
was invaluable - some straits were impassable, tho' with some close
encounters with the shoals we sailed on.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge proved to be too
well guarded to mount an attack. We lost a ship going under
the Bridge - a lesson to be had for pirates to be sure. At
first the Bridge was a sight for sore eyes, tho' we mourned the loss
of a good crew as that ship meet Davy Jones.
Our armada continued on towards our prize!
Pondi Beach was our first port o' call. The crew of the Bonny
Anne put ashore on the beach to rape, loot and pillage. OK,
just to plunder .... MMM, OK they got out and had a look around.
Beware the sharks off Pondi - they're not shy
of attacking ships! At one stage, the Captain had a shark
under each arm, tho' one bite of the Captain and they spat her out.
GaiaGirl, n'er one to take that sort of thing, bit the sharks back
and they retreated back into the water.
Onward to the prize - the Sydney Opera House!
