After Friday night's arrest of Captain Billy Bowlegs, his wenches
proclaimed they would return on Saturday to free their Captain.
I didn't want to miss that so off to the Landing I went, ready to
see how this would play out. Captain Bowlegs has never been arrested
and taken off to jail in handcuffs before so I was excited to see
what would happen next.
Plus, I love to watch the skirmish between the pirates and the
I found a good spot and along with hundreds of other people,
waited for the pirate's ship to sail up to the Landing.
The Pirates came up to the dock American Spirit. Behind them were
their maidens and wenches on the Southern Star.
The announcer tells the crowd that
Captain Bowlegs and his Krewe have arrived and are going to try and
take over the city.
Wasn't the Captain arrested and taken
to jail Friday night in an “unprecedented act?”
In a brilliant move, the pirates must
have invaded the jail at dawn and freed their captain and mates.
The pirates landed and advanced on the
milita, demanding the Pirate Coin the Mayor had.
As the pirates advanced, the militia
shot them all dead.
Right about then all of the pirate
wenches came running up the dock, sprinkled Fairy Dust on the pirates
and brought them back to life.
This amazed the Mayor so much that he
gave Captain Billy the coin he wanted and then turned the City of
Fort Walton Beach over to the pirates.
