Pirate Ship Gypsy Rose

I received a last minute invitation to take my son aboard a "pirate ship". It is an old houseboat that a man spent three months working on to turn into a pirate ship for guests to pay to ride on.  There was music playing, they stopped at an island for the little kids to look for "treasure" and to catch beads fired off the deck from a canon.  Here are a few photos:







Looking at the bluff line along the Mississippi River through the stern of the boat.




The captain coming back to the ship after taking the little kids on a treasure hunt.




The shark boat taxi made a couple of passes around the pirate ship.




The sun setting at the end of the nearly two hour excursion. Yes, the river runs West to East here.
