There was plenty of cannon fire at the festival, with the big gun being The Viceroy’s Maria. Momma Ratsey did quite a bit of firing and I caught a couple of good shots.
My first job on Saturday was to be the narrator of the Merchant Ship Seizure skit which is done on the Hampton Creek. Since I needed to see what was going on, in order to speak at the right time, I got to be on the second floor of the Dockmaster building and this was my view. Yes, Yes, it is indeed good to be the narrator.
My trip to the Blackbeard Festival is usually pretty unimpressive. I just get in the car and drive.
This year was different.
