Pirates were here! (maybe)

Argghhhh!

For Ren, we made a special stop at the Pirate’s House. It’s a restaurant and tourist trap, but has a pretty cool history associated with pirates and the novel “Treasure Island” by Robert Louis Stevenson. (Captain Flint in the book supposedly died in one of the upstairs rooms.)

Legend has it that sailors dining or drinking here would often indulge a bit too much, only to wake up the next day on a ship miles out to sea on a pirate ship. To earn their way back to land or their own ship, they would have to become pirates themselves.

  • Those graveyard pictures made me emotional, especially the statue of Gracie…it is so obvious that she was loved beyond measure. I got goosebumps looking at that shot.
