How to Dress Like a Pirate and The Sea Hawk

Random Magic Schedule
Reading about Captain Jack, the pirate king, was quite a treat! He's definitely what I think of when I think pirate. Here's what he looks like:

"The king of sea thieves was decked out in eye patch, peg leg, curly black hair, and big floppy hat with a floofy ostrich feather, as if he'd stepped out of a coloring book about pirates." (p. 216)

Imagine him to look a bit like this:

 Well, maybe a bit fatter and dirtier and maybe with a floofier hat:

Random Magic Tour: Pirates!
Bonus: Free audio book: The Sea Hawk 

As part of Random Magic Tour: Pirates!, it’d be fun to
swap some great pirate yarns - or just listen to a few great tales
about the sweet trade, the black flag, pirate queens or the Brethren of the Coast.
 
On this blog, you can listen to the audio book The Sea Hawk, by
Rafael Sabatini. Here’s a description of this novel about vengeance,
adventure, and the brethren of the Barbary coast:
 
From Wikipedia: The Sea Hawk is a novel by Rafael Sabatini, originally
published in 1915. The story is set in the late 16th century, and
concerns a Cornish sea-faring gentleman, Sir Oliver Tressilian, who is
villainously betrayed by a jealous brother. After being forced to
serve as a slave on a Spanish galley, Sir Oliver is liberated by
Barbary pirates. He joins the pirates under the name ‘Sakr-el-Bahr,’
the hawk of the sea, and swears vengeance against his brother.
If you enjoy the stories, you can download a free MP3 version of this
classic book:

  5. LOVE that pic of you and your husband :)
    I was in Gymboree a few weeks ago and a little boy was in there with his parents looking for anything pirate and he would not settle for anything less! He was disappointed that they couldn't find anything for him, LOL.
