My baby girl has entered the double digits today and with that comes double the sass. Throw in the bess frenn and you got double the trouble. Ever since we moved, Jolie has let it be known how much she misses her 2 best friends, Aaliyah and Valeria. She has a dirt spot on her white Vans that she refuses to wash away because her best friend Aaliyah accidentally stepped on her one time and it reminds her of her when she wears them. She has handwritten notes from her and even Aaliyah's school name tag. For her birthday all she wanted was to go to Pirate's Adventure and no presents; she couldn't think of anything she needed. Well, I got in touch with her best friend's mom and surprised her with seeing her for the first time since we moved and had her come with us to the Pirate thing! As you can see in the vid, neither knew how to act the first time they saw each other and both looked like they were overwhelmed and wanted to cry. They ate so much candy during both car rides, it's not even funny, and had an amazing time together. Aaliyah has a phone and her screensaver is a picture of the coin purse key chain that Jolie bought and gifted her the last day she attended school and saw Aaliyah for the last time. After we dropped off Aaliyah, Jolie said, "Mom, thank you for inviting Aaliyah, those are the types of presents that I like, surprises like that." #VitaJolie#prettylife#ten#doubledigits#doubletrouble#10#tween#babygirl#birthdaygirl#happybirthday#surprise#November18th#November18#firstborn#girl#proudmom#humble#humblekid#thebestthingsinlifearentthings#friendship#friends#bestfriends#piratehat#piratesword#pirate#piratesadventure#pirategirl#mateys#ahoymatey#bestmates
⚜️ She was a pirate ⚜️ 🇫🇷 Comme j’ai pris en compte vos votes (eh oui, je fais ça), voici une petite aquarelle que j’ai fait il y’a quelques temps. Pour ceux qui ne le sauraient pas, il s’agit de Joanne Kevilnec, fille du capitaine Étienne Kevilnec (et accessoirement héritière de son bateau), un personnage que j’avais créé pour un projet de BD qui ne s’est jamais concrétisé. Malgré le fait que son histoire ne vera sans doute jamais le jour, j’aime son design et son regard aussi espiègle que déterminé.
Aussi, bien que se soit très rare, j’ai voulu en faire une aquarelle, et je crois que je commence à prendre le coup de main ! 😁
🇬🇧 According to your votes, here’s a little watercolours artwork I did some times ago. For those who don’t know her, her name is Joanne Kevilnec. She’s the captain Étienne Kevilnec’s daughter (and as well the one who’s going to inherit his ship). I created her for a strip projet which finally never happened, but I like her design and her sight, as childish as determined.
Even if it’s really rare, I used watercolours to represent her, and actually I think I start to understand the process ! 😁
Long before it became a popular stopover for cruise ships and vacationers, the Bahamian island of New Providence was known as a lawless “nest” of pirates—and for good reason. The island sat in the center of the well-traveled trade lanes between Europe and the West Indies, and its capital of Nassau offered a safe harbor for marauders to repair and resupply before setting sail in search of plunder. By the 1710s, New Providence had become a popular gathering place for some of the Caribbean’s roughest customers. Among others, raiders like Blackbeard, Stede Bonnet and Charles Vane were known to haunt its seaside taverns and bars.
Pirate activity in the Bahamas eventually became so rampant that the British government feared for the long-term survival of its colony. In 1718, the Crown dispatched three warships to New Providence along with a new governor—the privateer-turned politician Woodes Rogers. Governor Rogers offered a pardon to any pirates who surrendered—some, like Benjamin Hornigold, even became pirate hunters—but he showed little mercy to those who resisted. In December 1718, he sent a chilling message to unrepentant buccaneers when he executed a band of convicted pirates in Nassau. From then on, New Providence was slowly transformed from a playground for thieves into one of the main headquarters for anti-piracy operations in the Caribbean.

My new pirate OC, Hettie! I promise I’m gonna draw Shawn and Claudi soon, I’ve just been obsessed with this girl recently!
A little about Hettie:
Hettie is short for Henrietta (her parents were expecting a boy and was going to call him Henry but they got her instead)
She grew up sailing and the ocean became a part of her. She always had a passion for exploring and craved the thrill of pirating but grew frustrated as her parents never let her in on any of the action (didn’t want her to get hurt and also she wasn’t very strong)
Eventually Hettie decided to leave and go on her own path. She searched for a crew to help her learn the ropes. Most of them laughed in her face. “This innocent little girl doesn’t know what’s she’s getting into” they said. Others were just plain creepy.
Then one night she sat in a bar, debating if this was a good idea after all. Then she saw a man sitting in the corner of the room and something told her to talk to him.
It’s FREEBIE FRIDAY again! Your students will think this is the coolest activity. They will use the word cards to build four different sentences. The packet includes a recording sheet and an answer key. Link to my store in my profile. #sentences#pirategirl
An manchen Wochenenden tausche ich Hose und Sneaker gegen Muskete und Dreispitz ☠️
Gestatten: McKenzie - oder wie diverse andere Personen jetzt sagen würden, "Schmack-dazzly-manzy Mcfancypancy" (danke Thomas an dieser Stelle.. 😂). Kaum zu glauben, dass der Charakter jetzt schon 1 1/2 Jahre alt ist. Um so schöner, dass es inzwischen ein paar echt tolle Bilder von ihr zu bestaunen gibt 🙂
Leider neigt sich für mich die LARP-Saison allmählich dem Ende entgegen. Aber mit etwas Glück wird McKenzie im nächsten Jahr wieder auf dem #epicempires@epicempires anzutreffen sein und wie gewohnt mit der Batard Ivré ins Feld ziehen. Und vielleicht gibt es dann auch wieder eine echte Tavernenschlägerei, denn an diese habe ich mich in diesem Jahr tatsächlich zum ersten Mal gewagt - und ich darf sagen, das war ein Sieg auf voller Linie! Oooh, Canadaaa! 😄 🇨🇦
Den gleichnamigen Song dazu liefern übrigens aktuell @knasterbart.offiziell mit ihrer neuen Single "Kneipenschlägerei". Unbedingt reinhören, wer's noch nicht kennt! Den Link findet ihr in meinem Profil.
🏴☠️ Случайный кадр. Увидели пустыню по дороге со странными растениями и решили остановиться посмотреть.
Эти растения- кораллы, которые остались на месте высохшего соленого озера🌊. Чёрная рубашка мне напомнила развивающийся пиратский флаг, и мы решили сделать фото. Как по мне, это ещё напоминает большое черное крыло) Кажется, получилось очень неплохо🥰
🏴☠️ This photo made unplanned.
We rode along the road, it was very hot day, I was already in a swimsuit (because in other clothes it’s uncomfortable in such a climate)
Dima gave me his light black shirt so that my appearance would not bother people)
We saw a desert with strange plants and decided to stop and look.
These plants were algae and corals, not so long ago there was a salt lake at this place, the water dries up during a drought.
Under my feet is salt, not sand. million million grains of salt.
There was a strong wind, and the black shirt in my hand developed like a pirate flag on the Dead Sea. Dima said “Stop!” and took this shot📸
