Festival Special, Tall Ships: Fossil -Ross

Ciao a tutti!

As I have blogged before, my shoes have taken me to some amazing places, and today was no exception.  My day started out in this fabulous pair of shoes and outfit, and led me...

 Here, to the Atlantic Coast 2012 Tall Ships Challenge!

Where I got to board ships from all over the world and tour their amazing spaces above...

and below deck...

Aboard the La Belle Poule with her sister ship Etoile
from France.  I even got to practice my French!

The Alliance
The Bounty.  This beautiful vessel was used in the filming of Disney's
Pirates of the Caribbean

Then came the fun.  Professional and semi-professional pirates thrilled and entertained us with their swash-buckling feats.  Partial to sailors, you know I had to make a stop when I saw...

These handmade hemp sandals!
"Wiggle your toes!"

 Kincaid (below left) and Iron Nigel (below right) travel all over the US from Key West** bringing a little pirate cheer everywhere they go!
Drink up me 'earties, yo ho...a pirate's life for me!*

 With the annual Pirate Festival coming up in October, I'm already getting my costume ready.  Just one question: What exactly does a Pirate Wench wear?

Baci a tutti!
