I've always had a fascination with pirate lore so that's really cool.

Everyone has a bit of Pirate in them; I don't know anyone who hasn't let loose an "arrrrrgh" at one time or another. Every parrothead belts out the words to the second verse of Jimmy Buffett's "A Pirate looks at 40" (Yes I am a pirate, 200 years too late; the cannons don't thunder, there's nothing to plunder, I'm an over-40 victim of fate, arriving too late, arriving too late."

As for me, I'm starting to tire of pirates. I've been in Fernandina for a year and a half now, and everywhere I look, it's about pirates.
Pirate lore is a big part of the town's history, and they make the most of it. Of course, the local schools all have Pirates as their mascot. And every May, they have the "8 Flags Shrimp Festival," which is a HUGE affair for such a small community (the population more than quadruples for that weekend); included in the festivities is a pirate invasion, where pirates storm ashore and take over the waterfront downtown--that scene gets repeated several times over the weekend. Pirates in full costume all over the place. And every parade--regardless of the theme--includes pirates. Last weekend, we had the annual "Dickens on Centre" celebration (Centre St. is the main street downtown), with actors strolling the street in mid-18th century garb, regaling everyone with Dickens lore, doing improv skits, and there was even a mock up of an English Pub of the era selling adult bevarages. But there, mixed in with the festivities were dozens of --you guessed it-- pirates.

Have made two visits to Amelia. Loved it. Only regret is that one place we loved there has closed; down under was a great seafood placed appropriately named beneath the bridge from mainland.

Down Under re-opened this past September. It stays full.

You painted a picture, Roller. Well done. Reminds of of the half manufactured/half real Parrothead persona that powers Key West tourism. It’s a bunch of people our age with tie dyed t-shirts and gray hair in ponytails getting teary eyed watching the daily sunset from the town square, well lubricated in Margaritaville. It works for them.

Thanks for the update! We might have to get off on the first exit off 95 on our next trip to WDW!
