July 5 was a special ceremony aboard
Esmeralda, the steel-hulled four-masted barquentine tall ship in the Chilean
Navy at which the oldest living Chilean Brother Hammer was honored. The
deck was awash in Pisco Sours, if I remember, or was I?.
The final event on Sunday July 6 was
a Pirate Party at the Fordham Street Beach Club on City Island, where we
still hold our zaffs, kindness of Jay Howard. The Islanders are still talking
about seeing large buses with disembarking pirates on City Island Avenue
walking down Fordham Street as it was too narrow for the buses to turn around.
The Chileans provided tubs of Pisco Sours, there was music, dancing and
a (temporarily) stolen American Flag from the flag pole.
Orza, a good time was had by all.
