Pirate Day at Fort Mifflin

August 15 was Pirate Day at Ft. Mifflin, Pa.

We sailed to Ft. Mifflin on Gloucester City’s Northwind.

Gloucester City’s Northwind is docked at Ft. Mifflin, Pa.

When we docked at Ft. Mifflin, we had access to the grounds and were able to watch a skirmish.

Because it was so hot and the sun was on full blast when the 3:00 pm skirmish started, we stayed in the shade under some trees.

One of the pirates came over to tell us: “You’re behind enemy lines, but you should be ok.”
