Black Sails History: Anne Bonny and Jack Rackham.

 

Have you ever heard of Jack Rackham, also known as the pirate “Calico Jack”? Did you know there were at least 2 recorded histories of female pirates in the Caribbean? Did you know that these stories intersect??

Shelling / Beach-combing – A Year Round Hobby

Customize It All

Shelling is a favorite pastime of mine, and the best part is, it can be done year-round.

Storms churn the sea, bringing up many long-hidden ocean treasures up on shore. Yes, the windy Winter months are harsher for shellers, but with several layers to keep warm (a rain poncho helps), you can gather those hard-to-find shells you’ve been waiting for.

Where I live, the Gulf Stream is ever-faithful to bring up surprises from all over. My latest goals are finding dark purple quahog and conch shells. I’m going to make some wampum jewelry with my trusty Dremel tool, and I need some conch shell to experiment making other jewelry beads, or whatever I come up with. Will post pictures when I can get further South…

NEW! “Boat Drinks” T Shirt by CousinBelles

Yep, a Jimmy Buffet reference to the cocktails with little paper umbrellas…

From personal experience I found that consuming alcohol does actually alleviate seasickness when consumed before heading out in the water…in moderation, though!
