tis a grand time!! hopefully the fireworks won't be weathered out for a third year. Hampton is a unique festival in that it follows a specific chain of events and centers around living history. I have never seen the entire "festival", maybe this year I can sneek out and visit. the living history and the reenactments take up the waterfront- then the festival sprawls through downtown. I'm not sure of the larger boats, but i do know there should hopefully be three longboats pounding it out this year.

:lol: ...(Blink...Blink...Blink)...

"My word Nell, if you make your way up to Blackbeard's this June, mayhap I should instruct thee on the benefit of a Happy Man..."

Lilly pauses a moment, then kicks the hemp rope under the bed.

"There is something about a Sea-farring man and knots, eh Nell?" ;)

I'll be there...I am hoping to go arrive early enough for a "school trip" again, Captain. I think the new kids would get a kick out of Bess. I'll see what I can do.

The Pyrates of the Coast are out as well. The crewe really wanted to fight the Spanish again at Drakes Raid in St. Augustine. So we must acquiesce to their request.

Have fun all! Perhaps next year.

Unfortunately, we won't be attending Blackbeard this year. . .but for the best of reasons.

My boy, Alex "Black Arrow" Kimball gradee-ates from High School!! Plus, he passed all his quals and physicals to enter into the Navy (like his father and grandfather before him) and is scheduled to take the Special Forces battery of tests prior to enlisting to become a Navy Diver.

I'm very proud and the celebration of his new life must take precedence over my pirat-in'.

It's 14, not 15!! (unless I've been demoted) B) I know, all us numbers are hard to keep track of!

Can't wait to see me charmin' husbands and all you wonderful Archangel Crew again!

B) Well, seeing that Bess the Indentured Servant is 13...you're 14...I'm sure there will be a 15 soon enough!

Now, Rum...sing along...tall tales...aimless camp crawling...what else can we do?

be sure you have sun screen and drink lots of water. we sent two off to the hospital last year from exhaustion, exposure and maybe a wee bit too much rumbulion. Otherwise things are shaping up well from what i understand, I get to enjoy the festival this year! My only obligation is to man the explorer and enjoy friends company!

I am not attending Blackbeards as of this posting, unless something changes within the next month. I have wanted to be there as I've heard grand reports of this event. Have fun and drink one fer me.
