I love the Brixham Pirate Festival.
Every year I turn up dressed to kill and just soak up the amazing atmosphere. Pirates of all ages, and all costumes from the simple to the historically accurate.
Scoundrals and scallywags, with ladies, wenches and strumpets.
The weather was amazing, the drink was flowing and as usual everyone was friendly and willing to chat over a drink or two.
Sea shanties and dance groups, partying on a Spanish Galleon as night fell, then up again to watch a raiding party board and fight.
The recoats fired their cannons, and the pirates their flintlocks, and a great time was had by all.
These are a few of the characters that make Brixham such a success.
