Recently we had a new addition to our human family, a new niece/cousin, Miss Savannah Marie. Ducky and the gang were so excited to see pictures of the new baby. This got them thinking- Where they ever babies? This question made the humans laugh. After they were done laughing, they got out their photo album and showed them several baby pictures of Ducky and Pembleton when they were just lil’ guys. This was their favorite photo:

"Goo-goo, ga-ga!"

“Goo-goo, ga-ga!”

"Don't let them get away!"

“Don’t let them get away!”

Once freed from the ropes, Ducky and Pembleton quickly ran to where the dinos were being held captive.

“Hurry, we have to catch Professor Plumbottom and the Cat Pirates. We can’t let them take Xanadu!” Pembleton shouted.

“Don’t worry, Pembleton. I won’t let them get away!” Ducky said as he mounted his dino buddy. “We will stop him.”

Ducky and his dino buddy charged down the pier. Ducky shouted, “Tally Ho!” as they jumped off the pier and into the water.

The Cat Pirates were already in their hot air balloon. Captain One Mitten, always ready for the escape. But the Professor, who was old and portly, struggled to get in to the balloon as it slowly drifted away.

“Not so fast, Professor. You’re not going anywhere!” Ducky said as his dino buddy grabbed his robe.

“Help Captain One Mitten,” the Professor cried.

“Sorry, but I need to live to tell another tale,” he said as he pried his fingers off the basket. “Till we meet again Ducky,” the Captain said slyly as he floated off.

“Next time,” Ducky replied unhappily as the Cat Pirates once again got away.

Inside the Temple, Harry the snow hare gave Ducky a blanket and some warm food. After a couple of minutes he started to feel much better, and a lot warmer.

While at the temple, they began to discuss the search and rescue plan. Harry and his friend Tom the tortoise had heard some locals saw smoke rising from the west, next to the forbidden caves. They might have gone inside for shelter from the storm.

“Forbidden caves?” Ducky asked, “Why are they forbidden?”

“Legend has it that everyone who has gone in to them has never returned,” Tom replied.

“Legend or not, it’s our best lead, and we will come back.” Pembleton said with determination.

"Ahhh.... much better."

Once Ducky and Pembleton weathered the storms, it was smooth sailing.

“So what’s the plan?” Ducky asked. “Are we just going to fly in to the Himalayas, do the rescue and be back by snack time? Ted said they are making cookies with Mrs. Cottontail.”

“No, Ducky. Unfortunately we won’t be making it back for snack time. There is no suitable landing strip in the Himalayas, so we will be landing about 50 miles south of the mountains. From there, we can take a train.”

“A train? I love trains. Will there be a snack car?” Ducky said all excited.

“I just hope we make it in time,” Pembleton hesitated, “There is only one train per week and it leaves this afternoon.”

***

5 minutes before departure…

“I got the tickets,” Pembleton said nervously. “But I don’t know which track. We need to hurry, but all the signs are in an animal language I don’t know.”

“Hey, Pembleton? Is that, who I think it is?” Ducky asked.

“Who? Where?” Pembleton asked. “EDGAR! What are you doing here?”

Edgar the Elephant and member of the Pooh Bear Society, replied, “I’m visiting my family. They run the local trains, and I’m helping out.”

“Great! We are on an adventure and our train is about to leave any minute. Can you direct us to the right train?” Ducky asked.

“You are in luck. It’s right behind you and I’m about to give it the go ahead. Hurry up and find your seats. And good luck on your adventure.” Edgar said.

“Thank you!” Ducky said, as he dragged his luggage in to the train car. “Boy does our luggage feel oddly heavy.”

To be continued…

"You got our tickets and I got our luggage. Now which train do we take?"

“You got our tickets and I got our luggage. Now which train do we take?”

Ducky and Pembleton packed their gear, then dropped the lil’ guys off at Mrs. Cottontail’s cottage, before heading to the airfield. Things were running smoothly until a patch of dark clouds appeared on the horizon as they were over the Horn of Africa and entering the Indian Ocean.

Before they knew it, the plane was surrounded by rain, thunder, and lightning. Visibility was down to 100 meters. Pembleton turned to Ducky and said, “Thank goodness for the planes top notch altimeter and GPS systems,” but just as he tapped on the plane’s compass, all of the instruments went haywire. Both Ducky and Pembleton were scared. “Without my instruments, we don’t even know which way is up. What are we going to do?”

Just when they thought all hope was lost, Ducky saw something strange. He tapped Pembleton on the shoulder and yelled over the hum of the plane’s engine, “Follow that elephant.”

Confused, Pembleton yelled back to Ducky, “What are you talking about? We’re almost a mile above an ocean. There can’t possibly be an elephant here!”

“Over there! Over there! Look at that cloud! It’s an elephant and he’s pointing the way!”

“You’re right! It is!” Pembleton turned the plane to follow the elephant and within a matter of minutes they were leaving the thunder storm behind. They waved goodbye as they passed their fluffy elephant buddy and headed off into clear blue skies.

“I can’t believe Professor Plumbottom blocked my request to fund this rescue operation!” Pembleton shouted across Lionheart’s large oak desk in the Animal Adventurers Society presidential office. Ducky just sat quietly in a plump chair munching on some delicious cookies.

Lionheart, a wise old tortoise and president of the AAS, stroked his long white beard quietly waiting for Pembleton to calm down. Once Pembleton was between breaths, Lionheart quickly interrupted, “How about having a homemade cookie? They’ll help cool you down.”, and he shoved a cookie in Pembleton’s mouth before he could object. Then Lionheart explained, “If it were up to me, you know I would approve this operation, but I simply don’t have the authority to overrule our senior members. I’m sorry, but my hands are tied.”

“It’s not about the money. I’ll fund the entire expedition myself if I have too. I’m just disappointed that the AAS would turn its back on animals in need.” Pembleton explained, a little more calm after munching another cookie. Then he turned to Ducky and said, “Let’s get going. We have a long way to go.”

“One more thing,” Lionheart said as they were in the doorway.

“What is it?” Pembleton asked.

“Good luck and be careful.”

Ducky and Pembleton called for an emergency meeting of the Animal Adventurer’s Society. Something had happened over the Himalayan mountains and some animals needed their help. Members of the society hung on every word as Pembleton briefed them on the dire situation.

“I know we don’t have a lot of details, but we have to help them,” Pembleton concluded.

From the balcony Professor Plumbottom Mole shouted, “We are adventures, not rescuers. This is outside of our jurisdiction. It is foolish for us to waste our resources on something we know so little about.”

“I understand your concern Professor Plumbottom, but as stated in our constitution: ‘Members of AAS will not turn their backs on an animal in need.’ Furthermore, Ducky and I volunteer to lead this venture.”

“As a senior member of this organization, I vote NAY regarding this adventure. Who seconds me?”

"We have to help them!"

Late at night was Pembleton monitoring the air waves with his ham radio, but all he heard was the soft crackle of static and the munching of cookies. Suddenly a voice broke through the noise. “Mayday! Mayday! Help! We’re going down!”

“What is the problem? What is your current position?” Pembleton shouted into the microphone. Then he heard some rustling of nobs and buttons, “We are losing altitude too quickly. Our rudders aren’t responding to controls, and our GPS is all wonky, but we should be just south of the Himalayas.” Then there was some more rustling and a faint “Wow, this place does exist,” before a loud CRASH!!!

“Wait! Are you still there? Is everything alright?” But there was nothing. Pembleton quickly stood up and told Ducky, who was hiding behind the chair, “We have to alert the Animal Adventurer’s Society immediately.”

"Maday! Maday! Help! We're going down!"

Ducky and the gang are about to go on a new multipart adventure into the unforgiving Himalayan mountains. On this adventure, they will face danger at every turn, overcome impossible odds, meet new friends, and discover the secrets of a lost civilization. Stay tuned for the first part of this exciting adventure.

Our next adventure!

Our next adventure!

Ducky and the gang have been practicing and practicing for the up coming nativity play. Pembleton not only had the lead as Joseph, but he was also directing the play as well. This did not sit well with Ducky. He wanted to be the lead and he did not like Pembleton bossing him around.

Since Ducky was unable to be Joseph, he decided he wanted to be one of the three wise guys. He has been wanting to wear his Blues Brothers outfit again. But Pembleton just gave him an angry glare and said he had been cast as the angel. An Angel! Ducky knew this was the role he was born to play. He was going to be the BEST ANGEL EVER!

During the dress rehearsal Ducky prepared for his grand entrance! He planned to be lowered in by a pulley mechanism, operated by some local raccoons.  Unfortunately, things did not go as planned…

Hopefully Ducky will have it straightened out before their first show tomorrow.

To us a child is born...

To us a child is born…

Ducky and the gang are currently exploring the Canadian North for a couple of weeks. They will be spending some time in the Montreal area and hopefully meeting new friends. One of the first friends they have met is Marty the Mounty, a Canadian pony and officer of the law. He will be showing Ducky and the gang the ropes as they acclimate to their new home away from home.

Aye, what would you like to know a-boot Canada?

Aye, what would you like to know a-boot Canada?

Inside.

Once inside the look-out asked, “So what do they call yas?”

Pembleton was caught off gaurd, but Ducky quickly replied, “I’m Cheeseball, here’s my buddy Mousetrap,” pointing to Conrad, “And this is my other buddy Heathcliff McGee,” pointing to Pembleton.

“Umm…nice names. Come on in, were are preparing to load up the ship”, he said while leading them through the cannery.

“Quick we need a distraction,” Pembleton whispered.

“No, problem.” Ducky answered with a wink.

When they reached the other cats, Pembleton and Ducky saw it was in fact the sinister Captain One Mitten leading this dastardly endeavor. The cat pirates had almost finished loading up the boxes and would soon be shipping out to sea. Ducky hollered at the top of his lungs, “Such a treasure calls for a great piraty celebration!” and he began to sing “ninety-nine bottles of milk on the wall.” All the cats joined in, including Captain One Mitten.

While the other cats were distracted, Pembleton snuck over to the corner and found Abigail’s father tied up next to the robot. The robot was sad because Captain One Mitten had not only taken the crown he had stolen, but also the gold metal he had won during Robofest. Even worse, Abigail’s father was disappointed in him for participating in Captain One Mitten’s evil plan.

Pembleton untied Abigail’s dad and they snuck towards the front door. Pembleton tried to get Ducky’s and Conrad’s attention, but they were too carried away singing and merry making.  As Pembleton tried to get their attention, one of the pirates accidently stepped on Ducky’s tail, which then detached. First the pirate was horrified that he had so easily hurt Cheeseball. But then realized as Ducky continued to sing, that Cheeseball and his friends were in fact intruders and began to shout, “Intruders!”

The Clues.

On their way to the docks, Conrad asked Pembleton, “Why on Earth are we going to the docks? What possibly could those measly clues have told you?”

Pembleton began to explained as they walked the foggy, brisk London streets towards the docks. “The first clue, was that Abigail could not stop sneezing. Now, why would that be? I asked myself. It is not allergy season, and she is a healthy child with no sign of illness. Then I remembered last year when she got a kitten for her birthday, and she could not stop sneezing. She is allergic to cats. This leads to our second clue.”

Aaaachooo!!!

Aaaachooo!!!

“At Mr. Sloth’s laboratory, we found a hairball. This confirmed it was a cat, but it also provided some more insight. There is one cat in particular who has crossed my path before, who has such a problem. I’ll explain more about that later.”

Gross! A hairball.

Gross! A hairball.

“Finally that leaves our last clue. The tuna fish sandwich. This  again confirms we are dealing with cats, but it also tells us their location. I know of this stinky, horrendous brand of tuna fish. It is canned right here in London at the docks. You can smell it from a kilometer a way. Once there, I’m sure my final prognosis will be confirmed,” said Pembleton.

Stinky!

Stinky!

“What’s your final prognosis, Pembleton?” Ducky asked.

“Just wait, Ducky. All in good time,” Pembleton replied.

The Case of the Missing Sloth (Part 1)

The Case of the Missing Sloth (Part 2)

Late one night, Ducky was sitting in the DtPb PI office snacking on some cookies in the dark, when all of a sudden there was a knock on the door. The noise startled Ducky but thankfully not enough for him to drop a cookie. Ducky adjusted his hat and said, “Come in.” As the door slowly creaked open, Ducky didn’t know what to expect. He wondered, would it be an aardvark with an adventure, a monkey with a mystery, or a rodent with a riddle?

When the door finally opened Ducky was surprized to find Ted huffing and puffing from opening that huge office door all by himself. Ted wanted to know if Ducky wanted to watch a movie together and eat some popcorn, while he manned the office. So they watched a movie and ate popcorn.

Ducky PI

“I wonder who’s there?” -Ducky

In response to the information from Ducky and the gang, the police came to arrest Captain One Mitten and Egor, but when they arrived the cages were empty. A thorough search of the premises revealed nothing. The camel cops radioed in their findings and returned home empty handed.

"We got a jail break. Do you copy?"- SGT Camel

“We got a jail break. Do you copy?”- SGT Camel

“Don’t try to move!” Captain One Mitten snarled. Ducky and the gang were cornered and Captain One Mitten had a sword.

“We surrender! Don’t hurt us!” They all yelled.  Captain One Mitten then led them into the cave where Amanda Panda and Penelope Penguin were being held, along with Multilingual Mole.

“What are you going to do to us?” Pembleton asked as he, along with Ducky, Ted, and Blizzard were forced in to an empty cage.

“I, Captain One Mitten, will have my revenge. I have not forgotten about what happen on the island. You cost me my treasure. I plan on come up with something extra dastardly to do to you all. It will be the most terrible,  dreadful, fearsome, frightening, ghastly, horrendous, horrible…”

Ducky quietly whispered to Pembleton, “Don’t bad guys know once they start monologuing, the good guys always win?”

As Captain One Mitten was blowing hot air, and reciting the details of his evil plan, Ted and Blizzard slipped through the bars and tip-toed over to where Cornelius was tied up, just under Amanda and Penelope’s cage. Ted and Blizzard were able to open the satchel and retrieve the stinky boot, which they tossed to Amanda.

Amanda first was disgusted by the revolting odor, but then she knew what she needed to do. Captain One Mitten was still monologuing about how once he got Multilingual Mole to figure out how to open the door to his riches, he was going to do “the most appalling, atrocious, awful, monstrous, gris-” That was when Amanda chucked the stinky boot and smacked him across the noggin.

They all froze, as Captain One Mitten teetered and tottered back and forth while trying to finish his monologue. Then he fell to the ground with a loud ‘thud’.

“Wow, I’m surprised we can’t see birds flying around his head. Good aim, Amanda!” Ducky said with a little awe in his voice.

“I know.” Amanda said proudly.

“Pembleton, what would we have done, if I didn’t pack that stinky boot?” Ducky asked as Ted and Blizzard released them from their cage, but Pembleton acted as if he didn’t hear him. Soon everyone was released. Then Ducky and Pembleton dragged the Captain into the now empty cage and told Egor to get into the cage too.

“Okay, now lets get out of here!” Amanda firmly stated.

“Wait!” Multilingual Mole shouted. “We can’t leave the mystery unsolved. We have come all this way and this mystery has laid uncovered for hundreds of years. The ancient test reads ONLY THE FAINT OF HEART WILL BE ABLE TO UNCOVER BEARISTOTLE’S GOLDEN TREASURE THAT LAY BEYOND THIS DOOR. Now I need to see the girls pendents to figure out how to unlock the door.”

Reluctantly, Amanda and Penelope, who had retrieved their pendents from Captain One Mitten, handed them over to Multilingual Mole.

Over the Edge!

After they were able to open the secret passageway, Ducky and the gang entered the dark tunnel, along with Cornelius. It was so dark, they could barely see anything. Before heading too far in, Pembelton took the old blanket and wrapped it around the stick to make a torch. He asked Ducky to hold the torch, while he lit the torch using his flint key chain, he always carries just in case of emergencies like this.

The tunnel twisted and turned downward, deep beneath the desert sands. They nervously followed the path. In the distance they could hear Amanda Panda, giving Captain One Mitten an ear full about how horrible their conditions were.

“You call this a falafel! I wouldn’t feed this to a rat!” she shouted.

“We must be getting close.” Ducky whispered to Cornelius, who whispered to Ted, who whispered to Blizzard, who then whispered to Pembleton. “What? Wet mustard boogied in the closet?” Pembleton whispered back to Blizzard. “What does that mean?”

“I don’t know. Just keep going.” Blizzard said as he hopped up on Pembleton’s back. He was getting tired.

They were almost at the end of the tunnel, when Pembleton stopped them. “Okay. We need to come up with a plan.”

“What do you mean? We just go in there and stop the bad guys!” Ducky said, walking towards the cave. “Why do you have to…”

Before Pembleton could stop him or Ducky could finish his statement, the floor opened beneath him. Ducky began to plummet towards a pit of sharp spikes. Luckily, Cornelius had fast reflexes and a long neck and was able to catch Ducky by the webbed toes before any harm was done. But unfortunately Captain One Mitten had hear Ducky’s scream and commotion caused by the booby trap.

By the time Ducky was back on solid ground, Captain One Mitten and Egor, had the gang surrounded.

Pit Stop.

The desert was hot and everyone including Cornelius wanted to get to the destination on the map as quickly as possible. Ducky tried to encourage Cornelius to speed up by repeatedly smacking the camel’s hindquarters with a stick and yelling “Giddy Up!” This approach, however, did not have its intended effect because, after a couple of minutes, Cornelius found a shady spot and sat down refusing to go further.

“Well, it’s probably about time we all took a short rest anyway”, said Pembleton as he unharnessed the supplies that Ducky had packed. “Maybe we can have some lunch.” Pembleton was trying to sound positive because he knew everyone was cranky after being in the sun for so long. When as he unpacked the “supplies ” he couldn’t help but be annoyed. “Ducky! Where is the water and the food?”

“Oh, I, uh, forgot to pack water, but I’m pretty sure I packed food,” said Ducky.

“What are you talking about?” said Pembleton as he laid out the stuff from their pack. “I see a few mushy french fries, two sticky butterscotch candies, a rusty fork, an old blanket, a cracked bottle, UNO cards, and a very stinky boot. Ducky! Why did you pack ONE stinky boot? We don’t even wear SHOES! What are we supposed to do with this junk!?!?”

“I was rushing. I just started grabbing stuff. Plus, you have to admit, UNO is a good family game,” Ducky said sheepishly.

“We got an idea,” Ted and Blizzard said in unison. “It looks like there is a well behind Ducky and an old bucket with some rope,” explained Ted. “If Pembleton is able to fix this bottle, maybe we can use it to store water for the rest of our trip,” Blizzard added.

“Good thinking little guys,” Pembleton said, “but I’m not sure how to fix the bottle.” Pembleton thought about it for a minute, then noticed Ducky was chomping on some gum. He forced Ducky to hand over the used gum and molded it over the crack. He then used some of the cloth from the old blanket to cover the gum to keep their hands from getting sticky. “I think that will have to do until we get to our final destination.”

After everyone had enough to drink and their bottle was filled, Pembleton made Ducky apologize to Cornelius. After some coxing, Cornelius forgave Ducky and they were on their way, again.

The Map.

Once Ducky and Pembleton made sure the poor monkey was being taken care of, they returned to their investigation of the map.

“Where is this map leading us?” Pembleton asked.

“Obviously to the giant red ‘X’!” Ducky answered.

“But where do we start?” Pembleton asked.

“I don’t know. I don’t have all the answers! Wait, why does this map feel crusty?”

“Wait, just one minute.” Pembleton said. Pembleton sniffed the map and his eyes grew big. Ducky knew he was on to something. His super sniffer was never wrong. Pembleton walked over to the table and grabbed a lemon. Now Ducky was just confused. Why did he need a lemon?  Then Pembleton squirted the lemon juice over the crusty area and held it over a candle. Soon a secret message appeared in light brown letter.

“How did you know how to do that?” Ducky asked.

“It’s simple science, you see…” Ducky quickly cut Pembton off.

“You can tell us later. Do you know what this ancient scribble means?” Ducky asked.

“No, but I know someone who does.” Pembleton said. He quickly grabbed his emergency phone and took a picture. “Multilingual Mole will know. He is a professor of ancient texts.” Shortly after sending, Pembleton received a text message back with the translation: TO UNCOVER THE MYSTERY OF THE DESERT SANDS, ONE MUST THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE, AS BEARISTOTLE ONCE DID.

“Huh?” Ducky said as he scratched his head.

To be continued…

"Why is this map crusty?"

“Why is this map crusty?”

Mystery of the Desert Sands Part 1

While traveling in the Arabian desert, Ducky and the gang visited a small village, where their favorite restaurant, Ali Baba Ganoush, is located. They ordered a full spread: grapes, hummus, pita, and shakshouka (poached eggs in a tomato stew). They were enjoying themselves, when all of a sudden a disheveled monkey crawled through the door and collapsed. In his hands he gripped a map.

“Quick! Get some water!” Pembleton yelled as he came around the table to check on the poor fellow.

“Your friends are in danger. You must help them ” the monkey gasped as he handed the map to Pembleton.

Blizzard rushed over with a glass of water. Pembleton helped the monkey to a pillow in the corner of the restaurant and urged him to take a few sips, before he fell asleep, exhausted by the journey.

“I think he will be okay.” Pembleton said, “but he will need to spend a few days in the hospital resting.”

“What about the map?” Ducky asked. “And the friends he mentioned. Who needs our help?”

“I don’t know, Ducky, but we are going to find out.” Pembleton said as he looked at the map and examined it closer.

To be continued.

"Your friends are in danger"

“Your friends are in danger”

Yesterday morning Ducky went on a walk. As he walked by the local Jewish community center, he saw a group of humans standing around a bonfire. He was curious so he waddled over to see what was going on. As he peeked through the crowd, he was shocked by what he saw! They were burning bread and crackers! “WHY?” Ducky thought. Then Ducky noticed a wise old owl near by. He walked over and asked what was going on.

The owl replied “It’s the burning of the Chametz.”

“What is that?” Ducky asked even more confused.

“During Pesach, or Passover as you know it, the Jewish people burn anything leaven and do not eat bread or other leaven foods for a whole week in remembrance of their escape from Egypt.” said the owl.

“What? No bread? No pita? Not cake? No cookies? No nothing?” Ducky asked. “When does this start?”

“Tonight.”

Before the owl could say “Chag Sameach (Happy Holiday)”, Ducky ran past the bonfire, grabbed a bag of pita and headed home. He had some eating to do before Pesach started!

"Yummy... Hummus...Pita...Pita...Hummus..."

“Yummy… Hummus…Pita…Pita…Hummus…”

New blog posts every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday!

(Pretend today is Monday!)

Once the pirates left, Pembelton gave Ducky and the little guys the all clear to join him near the pirates camp site. Pembleton was searching high and low for the radio jammer, but was unable to find anything.

Meanwhile, Ducky was becoming more and more curious about the pirates loot. He picked up a stick and started pocking and prodding around. Finally after becoming bored, Ducky hit one of the barrels and cracked it. Then gold coins started falling out.

Ducky lifted Ted and Blizzard up to one of the locks on a rusty chest. Since they were little, they were able to easily pick the lock. When they opened them up, there were crowns, scepters, jewels, and more golds coins. They were so excited they didn’t even see the bamboo trap hanging just above their heads.

Just as they were about to leave the pirates camp, Ducky wanted to grab one last coin that rolled next to the chest. As Ducky waddled over to get it, they heard a CLICK. Before they knew it, the cage came crashing down on them. They were TRAPPED! Like rats!

Part 4 The Pirates! Ducky’s Mediterranean Cruise

Their boat was stuck in a sandbar and Pembleton felt like something fishy was going on because every attempt to radio for help was being jammed. The only thing they could do is take their life raft to the nearby island and search for help.

Once Ducky, Pembleton, Ted, and Blizzard made it to shore, they decided to explore the island. But Ducky insisted that they all stick together and Pembleton reminded them to walk quietly.

It didn’t take long for them to discover what was going on. Ducky and Pembleton heard rough voices through the dense jungle foliage. They carefully peeked through the bushes only to find CAT PIRATES!

“That explains it”, said Pembleton. “The pirates must be jamming our radio and they probably put that sandbar near the island to trap boats like ours.”

Ducky said, “Why does it have to be CATS? I hate CATS!”

“Except for kittens”, Ted reminded him.

As they listened to the cat pirates, they found out that their leader, Captain One Mitten, was aware of their boat. He had sent his first mate to check on the boat, but he returned saying that no one was on the ship and there was no treasure – only a few sandwiches. Both pirates agreed that they were hungry and went down to the boat to eat Ducky, Pembleton, and the little guys’ sandwiches.

Meanwhile, Ducky said, “Now’s our chance to find out what they are doing here.” Pembleton added, “Maybe we can disable their radio jammer.”

To be continued…

"Arrr... what kinda sandwiches, thee be?" -Captain One Mitten exclaimed.

Part 3 Sand Bar! Full Steam Ahead! Ducky’s Mediterranean Cruise

Pembleton, the Captain of the USS DtPb, searched his maps high and low for the best island or beach to have a picnic on. He was very careful to check his nautical maps and equipment to make sure he was sailing the proper channels.

However, he was SHOCKED when they pulled into what he thought was a safe bay, but turned out to have a hidden sandbar that was not on his maps! Their ship was stuck in the sand, just below the waterline. He tried to reverse the engine, but it was no use! In fact the engine started smoking!

Pembleton tried to call for help using his radio, but the signal was jammed. The only thing left to do was to take their life raft to shore and try to find help or at least eat their lunch.

Ducky and the gang recently went on a Mediterranean Cruise off the coast of Haifa, Israel. They took Pembleton’s new boat, the “USS DtPb,” for a short cruise around Haifa bay.

There was a slight breeze and the sun kept them nice and warm. The weather was perfect for a day out at sea.

Ted and Blizzard had heard that a pod of dolphins often liked to play nearby. They hoped they would be able to see them and maybe even see them do a trick or two.

Ducky was excited, when Pembleton told him the water would be calm today, with the occasional wave. It was perfect for some tubing or water skiing. Shortly after leaving the harbor, Ducky asked, “Is it time to get out my water skis?”
