Good point, Hiram,” Sarah had been through some unexpected adventures, “Chris, lets plan on leaving in two hours. That’ll give us enough time to pack enough for any contingency.”

Is there enough room in the plane?”

There’s always enough room in a cyber-airplane.”

Shouldn’t you guys let Boomer & Big Mac know you’re coming?” Kiwi Silverthorn asked.

You should let them know you’re flying down there,” Marshal Blackmon was well-aware of Boomer & Mac’s somewhat impetuous nature—after all hadn’t they left Danger Bay with little advance notice?

Where’s the surprise in that?” Sarah laughed, “Let’s get going Chris!”

The ‘Tall Ships’ will be in Duluth this week,” Collie McIntyre was looking at a brochure filled with glossy photos of some of the sailing ships expected.

Or, we could go south to the river bluffs below Lake Pepin.”

The Tall Ships won’t be there, Carl.”

I would like some more artesian well water please, People-dog Josef,” Daisy arfed politely, “Alpha-Jack, if we’re going to see the Tall Ships, shouldn’t we go to Danger Bay and take the Falcon? We could see them better and be part of the event.”

Good idea, Beagle-Breath, what do you guys think?”

Let’s pack up and leave tomorrow after breakfast!”
