The Briney Brick 9 (c): PIRATES!
They arrived with a huge raft, almost a real ship. It dwarfs my own boat, even after the additions I have made with some driftwood. By the way, is seems that having my own boat makes me a captain too. Their captain insists on calling me captain!
The pirates first started to fashion peg-legs from driftwood, and once they were back on two legs, they started unloading their raft.
They will staying for a while, doing some more repairs to their raft. I have been invited to join them.
The fellow with the long beard, Ben, also joined them recently. He's the only one with two legs... He says he has been on an island with a rum-tree before joining the pirates. I think he just overdid it a bit on the rum. The pirates seem to have a lot of rum with them anyway...
