The Real Pirates of the Caribbean

 I know you have heard me say over and over how much I love the Pirate of the Caribbean movies, The first one still being my favorite. The interest for me has grow with every movie, so Any thing I see on pirates I am so fascinated by it. And the legends of the pirates are so interesting that I can't help but wonder what it was like. When they find the sunken treasure I am so anxious to here the how, when, why of the story..

The Real Pirates of the Caribbean:

Take a look at the Caribbean hots spots once frequented by real pirates, including Edward Teach (Blackbeard), Calico Jack Rackham, Roberto Confresi and Jon Boysie Singh.
Pirate history buffs believe Port Royal, Jamaica, is a must-see Caribbean destination. It was once the pirate capital of the Caribbean. The British, based at Fort Charles, actively encouraged and even paid buccaneers based at Port Royal to attack Spanish and French ships in the 1600s. Fort Charles is the last of 6 forts that still exist as a tourist attraction.

  2. What a great piece of history. It is amazing how those pirates got around with their limited "equipment". Johnny has made pirates such romantic figures. I can't believe I haven't seen the new movie yet :((
