“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!”

In Old Saint Paul:
“Leave for where?” A very familiar voice asked.
“Here comes trouble with a capital T,” Medford Ambrose quipped as T walked past.

“What can we do?” Doc Shouse thought to herself.
“I will help you,” they heard, and moments later they found themselves flying over the Mississippi as it curved through the city. Sarah landed the L16 at the Port of Saint Paul
