Pirates Ahoy

Today was our town's annual Pirate Day.....I may have mentioned before that we hold the official world record for the most pirates gathered in one place......over 14,000......Penzance again tried to break that record this year.....and they must have been pretty p*****d as they only missed by 77.....so no record attempt needed this year.....but there were still a few thousand pirates marauding in town.
a rather blurred DD1 ready for action
 there's a prize for the 'best dressed' retail outlet
 Johnny Depp was in evidence everywhere
pirates larking around all over town
 a pirate parade almost impossible to photograph due to so many people milling around
best dressed pirate competition
and even the odd boat....this one made purely from recycled materials.
A fun family day out.

It really does look like a great day out Jacky. I bought a pirate costume pattern recently, mainly because it was ridiculously cheap, but I quite like the styles on it so you never know!

We made an attempt at the American record and as die hard as we East Carolina University Pirates are it was a pitiful showing for the count. We would so love to walk you streets with some Pirate Day :) arghhh

What fun! I need a parade for Rinda's scavenger hunt. This would have been a great one!

I think this looks better even than the Pirates ride we did in Disney. Way more pirates!
