where there is a sea, there are pirates


we found our very own pirate ship about forty-five minutes from our house.  that basically makes us pirates. we can't imagine how pirates sailed into lake ontario... but trapped by a manmade stone wall, we imagine these pirates, realizing their ship could not escape, abandoned ship and hitch hiked home on the QEW.

we parked in a snow drift along the lake, stood in the cold for an hour to take pictures (these with our canon a-1, others on a roll that we've lost...), and we spent another hour pushing our car out of the snow drift. and by we, i mean i sat in the car trying not to spin out while tyler pushed...

the long exposure made the full moon as bright as the sun.  but i promise it was night. and cold.

love,
r&y

here's another story about where this ship came from. but i'm pretty sure mine story is the correct one.

That is on the road to Niagra yes?? I wanted to stop there but we did not have enough time.
We should take pictures inside!

In Belleville, they have a park that is the shape of a pirate ship.
