Sandy Creek Nature Center invited me to this year's Talk Like a Pirate Day. I brought sea glass and stones, and the Nature Center had a big bag of shells for us to use. We made "pirate marks" a means for pirates to note where their buried treasure was without letting anyone else know it was there. Buying using things one might find on a beach, we created of finds of designs. And I got to wear my new kilt, so you know, winning.
