Yo ho ho. Ahoy me hearties! Sebastian here to finish my tale “In Search of Pirates” on the high seas. I’m an Old Salt now. I might even have salt water coursin’ through my veins. Let’s get on with it shall we?
Even though it’s been four whole days since I’ve returned from my adventure, I remember it like it was only yesterday. I was up bright and early to see the ship dock at a beautiful tropical island. “Here’s my chance.” I thought to myself. “There might be some pirates hiding out here.”
I was mesmerized by the water.
It was incredibly blue in some places and crystal clear in others.
While contemplating my search, I gave my minions a chance to wade in for a little while and can you guess what happened while they were away?
I met an honest-to-goodness pirate. Maybe you have heard of him. He goes by the name of Jack Sparrow.
After that initial rather awkward meeting, he convinced me that I would make a very good pirate.
I happily present these few photos of me taking in the sights my first official day (and night) as a pirate. I had them take a photo of me close-up first. Can you guess where I am in this photo?
Just a little further back in this one and you can see I am sitting atop an archaic buoy!
And here you can see just how huge – and cute - they are! The buoys – not my minions. I can’t seem to shake them even for a little while.
I’m such a photogenic pirate. No more photos, please! Well . . . okay maybe just a few more.
Back on board the ship and I discovered that everyone had become a pirate. Even my favorite servers. I just love these buccaneers! Can you see how well I was treated? I had a prime spot on which to sit for my photo.
Dessert that evening included a choice of Chocolate Rum Cake. Can you get tipsy from eating dessert? What’s that song? Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum?
Me with my mentor.
What a fun encounter I had with Captain Mickey. Next time (and there will be a next time or someone will walk the plank, matey!) I say, next time I think I need a coat like his.
Finally, we celebrated with fireworks off the starboard side of the ship.
Now that I’ve dressed like a pirate, eaten like a pirate and run amok like a pirate, I would say I’ve earned the chance to share in the pirate booty. I have it on good authority that the gold doubloons are made of chocolate! My favorite!
Until we meet again, smooth sailin’ from your favorite pirate - Aaargh!
