Since the full moon is tonight, what better place to have Angel Gracie’s Full Moon Pawty this month than Mallows Bay, with Lily & Jakar (two black cats) hosting and a theme of “Lucky”? But I’m not just bein’ egotistical this time. See, I’ve discovered “The Ghost Fleet of Mallows Bay.” Check it out:

The Ghost Fleet of Mallows Bay

During World War 1 the US Government announced plans to build 1,000 supply ships for the war effort. Boatyards across the country started churning out wooden steamships. But there was a problem: The ships were put together so fast that they were kinda barely seaworthy. And then just as the first hulls were hitting the water, the war ended. The government was left with over 200 obsolete, leaky boats. Long (long, LONG) story short, they ended up in Mallows Bay on the Potomac where they sit today, the largest shipwreck fleet in the Western Hemisphere. And possibly even the world (Yay, we’re #1).

Because they’re made of wood, after almost 100 years each vessel has become a mini-ecosystem with trees up to 40 feet high and all kinds of vegetation growing out of ‘em. The wrecks are now home to Osprey, water fowl, and other wildlife. Bald Eagles nest in the nearby trees along the shore. There’s a park there now, with boat ramps and everything. After the entertainment and the great food, O.J. & I are gonna kayak through the wrecks in the moonlight. Then we might or might not have a romantic hideaway ready on one of the ghostie ships. We ain’t tellin’. See you there!
