Pirate Map

Ready to set sail over the briny deep? I am!

Pirate Ship

Mateys, looks like we nabbed ourselves a fine prize! Lots of “claps of thunder” to go ’round…and pieces of eight, of course!

Pirate Book

And plenty more exciting pirate adventures to sail (the pages) through! https://davidleesummers.wordpress.com/2020/09/19/international-talk-like-a-pirate-day/ or find the entire Space Pirates’ Legacy series here: http://davidleesummers.com/books.html#pirate_legacy

Shiver me timbers, there’s a fierce storm a-brewin’! Batten down the hatches, ye scallywags, else we’ll all end up in Davy Jones’ locker! The sea witch shows no mercy…or does she? Read on to find out: https://mythsofthemirror.com/2021/06/07/the-ferryman-and-the-sea-witch-release-day/.

Blimey, we was almost scuttled, we was. Time for a nice cup of tea with those beckoning (and lovely) lads and lassies, especially after all that grog. If in favour, say “aye”! *chorus of ayes* https://thebubblytipsymermaid.wordpress.com/2022/08/18/a-mermaid-tea-at-sea/

Aye, me hearties, it seems we’re destined for Davy Jones’ locker after all. Who knew a mermaid tea would be at the bottom of the ocean?

*glub glub*

        Nice looking place! You know, I’ve been all over Georgia years ago but only driving a big truck, so pretty much the only places I got to stop were warehouses, grocery stores, and the like. Never have been there for pleasure.

        There is a lot I saw in the South that I liked, but I don’t think I could live there, at least in many places I visited in the summer. The heat and humidity wouldn’t be to my liking. Living near Santa Cruz, CA has made me soft. 🙂

        Ah, the great Flannery O’Connor! What a great writer. As chance would have it, I’m editing a Southern Gothic story for the anthology I’m working on on my other screen.


  1. I can’t say as I’ve read a lot of pirate or even nautical-themed books, but my favorite naval battle, if you want to call it that, is the slugfest between “The Rex” and “The Not for Hire” that occurs towards the end of the old Riverworld series of novels. And I played the heck out of a video game called “Sunless Sea” once …

    1. I added those to my TBR list, for sure! And Sunless Sea looks amazing! (Not that you even remotely asked, or wanted this info…ROFL…but under my history category on Goodreads are plenty of maritime history books, if you’re in need of a still-feels-like-summer snooze! (Actually, W. Jeffrey Bolster’s Black Jacks and books my Marcus Rediker are interesting. among others about Black pirates and Black whaling captains and such. Okay, I’ll stop droning on now! 🙂 )
