After much planning, driving, n' flying, I finally arrived at dar Island of Virgins, St Thomas. I stayed with my pirate mate, Casey, who brought me to Black Beards Tower, one of the four historical landmarks on the island. This sky tower be built in 1679 as a watchtower fer the harbor of Charlotte Amalie.
Here be Casey Thornburg, the event promoter of the first St Thomas Pirate Festival. I spend most of the day visiting possible sites to set up my pirate portrait photo studio. At day's end I swam in warm clear blue water of shappire beach, it felt wonderful, arrrrgh!
