"Yo Ho Yo Ho A Pirate's Life for Me"

The H.M.S Bounty docked on the Hudson River today and it was a perfect spring day
to take a day off to go for a tour.
Disney construted the H.M.S bounty in 1960 for the film, "Mutiny on the Bounty". It was also
used inthe the film "Treasure Island".
She was the "Black Pearl" in the "Pirates of the Caribbean"
Directly across the river is Beacon, named to commemorate the historic beacon fires that blazed forth from the summit of the Fishkill Mountains to alert the Continental Army about British troop movements.
This is a view down the Hudson towards New York City.
is located about ten miles from this point.
What a gorgeous day!
