Great Fun at the Festival

We’re having a great time at the Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival. Our friend Tom Mason was playing Saturday, (Tom Mason and the Blue Buccaneers) and he dragged us (and most of the audience) onstage to take part in the fun. There were many, many photos to be taken with people who wanted a picture with the pirates.

Rather than writing all day about it (we want to get to the beach this afternoon!) here’s a bunch of pix of the fun. In some of the pix you’ll notice I got a little sun, my face is a little sunburned. Naturally I did that on purpose so I’d be better color coordinated with my new shirt! Most of these pix are by Tori (Mad Sally, the official lusty pirate wencfh) which explains why she’s not in most of them.
