Blackbeard the Pirate

Blackbeard the Pirate
Ironic twist of fate, I turn on a movie this morning in Antigua, Guatemala and what is on the Hallmark Channel.

There is a small pleasure in trying to understand the freedom a pirate enjoyed living outside the law, an outlaw.

Honduras is close; I have felt a small egret for years because I took the El Salvador path south through Central America on my prior visit and not the Honduras, Scuba Dive, Pirate Island Route.

Antigua, Guatemala.

I read the Historical Novel by James Michener somewhere while on the road and learned some interesting wanders of the Pirates of the Caribbean.

I see the Wiki is doing a great job of collecting list Historical Novels. A typical style of many travel writers is to start out with a Quote, then slowly name drop titles of books, with quotes from these books.

When they wish to disclaim or distance a comment from themselves, or somehow say something, but not take responsibility, they will quote another book, thus saying the same thing without the heat. I normally just write and say what I think, and then add the quotes as collaboration. Interesting twist of styles if you notice, some authors almost take no responsibility for their own thoughts or beliefs.
