Thanks to everyone who participated. It was a successful voyage !!

We even made it to Pieces of Eight, um I mean Shanghai Red's. (Although they wouldn't play the Paul Page I brought )

And I'm glad Crazy Al wasn't arrested. I was a little concerned after his hi-jinks at the (former) Marina Del Rey DTBC and then seeing LAPD waiting (for us?) at the Warehouse.

Great time John-O, thanks for your efforts. I must admit the Sheriff's squad car grabbed my attention at the Warehouse, particularly since I was hauling over a truckload of tipsy travelers in the bed of my truck!.



I figured the Po Po were there because of Crazy Al going all Spiderman on the Marina Del Rey DTB.






Or trying to steal the mini-sub from the harbor!

Another classic moment on the crawl. The thirsty party arrives at stop number 2 The Galley only to find the doors locked!

John-O to the rescue. Open up says he.



And the doors open.


and in we go



to take over The Galley



Who wants a Mai Tai?

It looks like a great time was had by all.

The word on the scanner was a gangly guy was crawling in an inappropriate location. Then there was something about homeland security. But I am glad no one had to call a bail bondsman or use a get lurid jail free card.

I am looking forward to the next one, as I hope I can get the weekend off work.

Great photos!!

Thanks so much to John-O for organizing this nautical crawl! He is a master planner and a born organizer, and made things go smoothly. It was a real blast!

I'm now hoisting a virtual mai tai (the Galley's, not the Warehouse's) to John-O!

Thank you John-O for a great crawl, I got to explore some places that I had should have long ago.
Great photos, Cap Falernum! (OK, Dusty Cajun too)
Here is some urban archeology from my camera:

The Captain of the Cruise:


The fearless crew in front of the marooned space ship of Don The Beachcomber's:

(Al was still toiling in the Beachcomber's rigging, and Murph was temporarily lost in action)

The first Port of Call:




Tiki crawlers in uniform:

(We see first signs of the incessant Christmas light infestation that seems to have spread throughout vintage dive bars)

Happy sailors in front of the window to the Henry Kissinger Room:


NOT Henry Kissinger!:


Chinese lighthouse lamp?:


Seeking refuge from the glaring Pacific sun below deck:


Giant Tridacna clam washed ashore outside the brig:


Some urban islands we passed en route to our next landing point:




Permission to board THE GALLEY:


...with a boatload of TIKI TOURISTS!:


The cocktail hour:


The Galley actually has lotsa bamboo...


...and cool fishnet float lamps:


...but, as can be witnessed in some of Cap Falernum's photos above, the Christmas light scurvy has run so rampant here that it is actually as hard for the human eye as for the camera to see the cool decor details on the walls and ceiling!


So I made it my mission to excavate some of these elements hidden under the light string jungle:


There are some South Seas Belles:


...and evidence of forgotten pagan rituals:


Original (Christian's Hut) Mutiny on the Bounty pieces...


...and Pacific War Veteran posters (as mentioned by John-O):


Blowfish chandeliers...


...bar wisdom signs...


...and nice men's room pin ups with a port hole mirror:


The question that remains is: What came first, the cocktail napkin or the belly tattoo?:

Now that is customer loyalty!

OK, I have to take a break and get this posted before it possibly freezes and I loose it all...

NEXT: Don's UFO, Burt Hixson's place, and NO evidence of Pieces of Eight
