My #tallships T-shirt and necklace. When I was a kid, we went to Mystic Mystic Seaport and I remember loving the ship there. I don't know if was the Captain Morgan back then. #PiratesLife #WhatAWayToLive

CrowCAH Love both the necklace and the tshirt! 😍 Do you think the shirt is still orderable? 3y
PirateJenny @CrowCAH The shirt is from LuLaRoe. I just got it this spring so it should still be in the current list I think. You need to either find a consultant or look on eBay. Style is classic T. Original price is $35 3y
CrowCAH @PirateJenny oh wow, LuLaRoe?!! Thanks! 3y
PirateJenny @CrowCAH Yeah! Sometimes they have amazing stuff. This is up there with my dodo leggings as a favorite 3y

CrowCAH I ❤️😍 loved Captain Blood!!! Can't wait to get to the Sea Hawk!!! These covers are gorgeous, too!!! 3y
LeahBergen Loved them both! ❤️ 3y
ScientistSam You are in for a real treat - Sabatini is wonderful! Growing up, we had a library that had a bunch of his lesser known (and probably out of print) books. I learned so much Italian Renaissance history from those😀 Captain Blood and the Seahawk are some of his best, as is Scaramouche. 3y

I don't think I have used Treasure Island yet for this this challenge... not sure how that's possible?!? Love this cover.

RealBooks4ever Fabulous! 💜 The cover is like the opening of a 1940s movie! 🎬🎥 3y
CrowCAH That is a really neat cover and perfect for today! ☺️ 3y

Today's prompt is #TallShips, those vessels with not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails, but what a ship really means; freedom!!!

Another beauty of a Hallmark ornament!

Cinfhen I've been loving your daily photos and blurbs! Can't believe it's almost time to sail off into the sunset 🌅 3y
CrowCAH @Cinfhen thanks! ☺️ It was fun and challenging, even for me to get all my stuff to fit the prompts, but I did it! Not sure how you can host a daily pic challenge for more than a month in a row lol 3y
Cinfhen I know! #JuneTunz is gonna be tough...because I let the Littens pick the song titles and some of them are really hard!!! I'm already stumped! I may need to recuperate in July😉 3y
CrowCAH @Cinfhen that's what you get for letting them pick 😂 3y

The Royal Navy during the Age of Sail features lots of #tallships This book is another great resource for anyone interested in seafaring adventures. As you can probably tell by my posts, I love Age of Sail tales, but am more interested in the Royal Navy than pirates 😉 #pirateslife #whatawaytolive

GabrielleDubois Ships, oceans, Mistress Mine should please you! 😃 3y
CrowCAH I love the Age of Sail too!!! Some books even put pirates in them ☺️ 3y
Melissa_J @CrowCAH I tend to go for the books set during the Napoleonic Wars, so there aren't many pirates in them, but would totally love to read some set during the Golden Age of Piracy. Do you have any suggestions? My only dislike would be romance novels. 3y

Melissa_J @GabrielleDubois I'll keep my eyes open for it 👍🏻 3y
LeahBergen Nice! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3y
PirateJenny For fun, there's the Pirates! Series by Gideon Defoe. Totally goofy but not entirely goofy that makes sense. You learn things. Captain Blood by Rafael Sabatini is a fantastic book. The Flynn movie was pretty close. The Requiem Shark is also very good. It's set on Bartholomew Roberts's ship.The Changeling about Anne Bonny (I think that's out of print). I haven't read Silver yet but I've heard really good things. 3y
CrowCAH @Melissa_J hmm, well, they are romances, so I'll recommend another series, set in the Napoleonic Wars. 3y
Melissa_J @PirateJenny Thank you! I have Captain Blood in my TBR mountain so perhaps I should start with that one 😊 3y
Melissa_J @CrowCAH Thank you. I'll look out for that one. It sounds interesting. 3y

I wish I could give this 2 ratings. I can appreciate that the author is clearly talented, and can write well, but this just wasn't for me. I'm not really interested in military fiction as a genre, and the whole thing was just a bit of a chore for me to finish. Hopefully my next read from @bookishly will be more up my street!
