Arrr u ready for this?

Yesterday was the 1st official day of the Pirates Week 09 Festival here on the island (this year being the 32th anniversary of it).

So on this day we celebrated the "landing" of the pirates in Hogs Bay, Georgetown, which symbolized the day they came ashore and took the faux Governor hostage, as well as they took over the island as well. Just like you see in the events here captured:

The (faux) Governor senses trouble on the horizon...

he is going to check out the situation....

the Pirates are coming and looks like they are going to attack...

yeap, now we are under attack!

they are getting closer

I don't think the Governor and his "troops" are ready for what's coming...

the pirates are ashore...

Oh- oh, the Governor is in trouble now...

and so is the rest of his troops

now he is officially captured

and so are his troops...

the pirates celebrate!!!

After the Landing we had the parade (more pictures to come tomorrow)...

There were all sorts of pirates around,
every size, color and and taste
(even Davie John's showed up!).

Now for the entire week the pirates will take the Governor around the island to the 5 different districts for what is called Heritage Day, its a full day at each area with lots of music, local food, crafts and events, very fun!

Stay tuned for more Pirates Week 09 Highlights over the week... Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I dressed as a pirate too! This is how I looked by the end of the day!
