"To live in the world without becoming aware of the meaning of the world is like wandering about in a great library without touching the books.".....The Secret Teachings of All Ages

Here is a great shot of me, and my friend Jill, in our pirate personas of Ransom and Red-Handed Jill. We're just about to touch the slow matches to the fuse on the cannons (called guns on board a ship). We are on the deck of the Aldebaran, making ready to fire on the shore battery at The Northern California Pirate Festival. We had SO much fun. Can you tell?

The picture was taken from shore by a friend with a great camera. His pirate name is Crunchy. :=)
