The Pirate In Me

Rarely do I have nice things to say about Puerto Rico. I've spent a bit too much time there, ya see? But today, two things struck me as worthy.

1. The weather was nice today. Not too hot, not too cool. Just right.

2. Docked in front of my hotel is a replica of the HMS Bounty, built in 1960 for the film, Mutiny on the Bounty and later used in other pictures, including some recent drivel starring Johnny Depp.

Having written a book about pirates, I've often regretted never actually stepping foot aboard a real pirate ship, which I thought would have made pretty cool research.

Avast! Today me ship came in. Thar be some treasure below, too! A (blurry) glimpse of me.
