Blackbeard's Stomping Ground

Check out this link to learn more about our Pirates of The Crystal Coast. Blackbeard and many other pirates used to comb our coast. If you read my blog the other day, now you will no why Fort Macon was so important to protect the harbor (Beaufort Inlet).

You can visit The North Carolina Maritime Museum which displays artifacts from The Queen Anne's Revenge with different exhibits from the found plunder from the shipwreck. If you take the Double Decker bus tour you can go by the house he supposedly stayed.

During the summer you can come watch the Pirate Invasion on the Beaufort Waterfront. It is a real life display of Pirates attacking the town and stealing supplies and women. Check for the time usually in July.

You have got to love it. I love when they shoot the cannons and come ashore. They are my favorite parts. And I love the Meka II, my cousin is married to Sinbad.

Mark, it does seem as if everyone is cashing in on The Pirates and I'm one of the millions who is eager to spend my money on the new movie. Actually I have owned every Johnny Depp movie sense "Cry Baby".
