Pirates are big in Fernandina Beach. And I don't mean their individual size but the fact that they are omnipresent goodwill ambassadors.
Yesterday, in honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day (an initiative promoted by none other than Dave Barry in 2002), they were out in force in downtown, entertaining kids and adults alike. Arrrrr!
Given their experience with cannonballs, we decided that at least one Pirate Team should participate in the Open.
Also, their arguments were quite convincing!
