"It generally is," Vickery said in response to Blackwood's observation. "I have never seen a place quite like it, myself, although things seem to sort themselves out."

Post  Richard Bolitho on Mon Mar 01, 2010 10:57 am

Bolitho shook his head, embarrassed that the men were already acting up. They had not even left yet. Perhaps this did not bode well for the actual trip...

"Please tell me they will all be able to control themselves on the trip," he muttered.

"Indeed." An undeniably interesting place. Blackwood stepped aside to let the blonde sailor scamper past with a blue-coloured box. "The men seem quite industrious, all things considered."

"I said, an orderly fashion," Vickery said, raising his voice a little and glaring at Chase and Tide Evans. "That means, one at a time and no pushing in."

"It isn't a boat," Vickery pointed out, and sighed. He intercepted a slightly anxious look from Cotton. "There are plenty of other things to do and to see," he said, and picked the abandoned leaflet up, offering it to Maggie. "This will tell you a little bit more about what you can expect to see when we arrive."

"S'it safe to board, sirs?" Branning asked, looking almost shamefacedly at the officers. He hadn't quite managed to fix the door, which now hung slightly sideways on its hinges.

Vickery looked at the door and shook his head in disbelief. He wouldn't have believed it, if he hadn't seen it for himself. "Yes, Private, it's quite safe to board. Provide you don't do so with your usual exuberance."

"Come on George. Let's go! There's that strange carriage/boat/thing with our name on it!" He had been a mere observer of all the chaos and mayhem that just happened. The house at least was not on fire!

He looked very quiet and insignificant passing the Lieutenant and the captain, and then grinned again. "Do you think the crew also came here the same way as we did? "

Re: Day Trip

Post  Zachary Pye on Mon Mar 01, 2010 7:31 pm

Pye observed their means of transportation very suspiciously and distrustfully, clothing his bag - naturally filled with food, for the trip - in his arms.

"Captain.. are ye sure we ..ought to go in there?" He asked. Firstly, why would anyone want to go in, to go somewhere - if that in wasn't a carriage for the rich, a wagon, for the injured, or.. that was about it. This looked like neither. No horses to pull it so it wouldn't move. And anyway, carriages were for officers if they weren't common , poor wagons. And this one certainly was NOT a wagon.

"Yes," Vickery told him firmly. "Along with anyone else who's coming. It's a long walk to where we're going." He hid a smile at the sight of Pye's bag.

"Longer than a day's walk, sir?" If Vickery said he had to go in, Pye would. And if they got lost or locked in to this strange apparition, he had enough food for a few dfays at least! He just didn't know how safe it would be with all them Tars, looking well enough to it it all in an hour!

Pye looked apologetic. "..But.. is only officers who ride in carriages sir, n' this is not wagon." He murmured very quietly. It wasn't a protest, since he was willing to go on. It was just, his thoughts and worries that the privates were not supposed to be 'on board' at all!

Newbury watched from the doorway, having silently followed the general movement outside. That had to be the strangest contraption he'd ever seen.

"Those Marines ain't bothered by it," he pointed out. "Can't be too unseemly if they're goin' with it."
