Sunday July 22nd was this year's Pirate Day.
Yes, that's right... Pirate Day!
See; here's the posters that were up for the event:
It's an anual thing, apparently.
People gathering together once a year to try and break the world record for the number of people in one place in pirate costumes.
Seriously... That's what it's all about.
Apparently they broke the record a couple of years ago; 2009 or 2010 it was, I think.
We didn't find out about it in time to be able to sort costumes and join in; well, Kero has his bandanna, but Kelly and I don't have anything pirate themed we could wear. But we went down the beach - well, we were going for something else anyway, we just left a bit earlier - and grabbed some photos of some of the pirates who were hanging around there. I know a certain new online friend of mine who would have been very disappointed if we hadn't. ;)
So, here are some of the pirates who were near the beach when we got down there:
Next year we're hoping to actually go and take part!
It was a nice day to be down the beach; beautiful and sunny! I bet you're wondering why I said we were going there for something else, eh? Well, guess what? I'm not going to tell you. Well, not today anyway. But if you come back tomorrow you'll find out! ;)
