Providence Pot - Dow Cave

Adam Walmsley wrote...

Another successful voyage for Captain Walmslers and 1st Lt. Finbarr Buxton. With a fair wind, they sailed from the port o' Providence Pot, navigating the narrow straits of Dowbergill without charts, to arrive on the sandy shores of Dow Cave. After an arduous 2:45 hrs on the high seas they were rewarded with a warm can of pomegranite rubicon and a bag of hula hoops.
