Maja Elien, the wife of Freddy Loof, gave birth to a baby boy Monday night in Oslo. They have yet to name the third, and youngest, baby Pirate in the

Black Pearl family. Freddy made the quick dash to the airport from Sanxenxo as soon as we docked. Good thing we were on a Volvo 70 and not a 60.

Early this year new pirates we brought into this world by the Ardern family and the DeRidder family. No reports of thievery yet.
