Ojai Pirate Faire

Look sharp and feast your grimey eyes (Ayes!) on this here mess o’ pics from the Ojai Pirate Faire 2006. Yes, Andrew wrote that first part and I stole it for the post, as my pirate tongue be not as good as his. But anyway, we went to the Ojai Pirate Faire (link above) last Sunday with a few friends and had a lot of fun! As you can see from the picts (linked above), there were tons of people in garb — it was quite a site — and many entertainers and sellers of unique wares all in pirate, or Renaissance, character. We weren’t sure whether we should go at first or not, as the nationally infamous Day Fire (named so because it started on Labor Day) was about 15 miles east of us around Ojai and still not under control. (Unfortunately, as you can see from that latest article, it’s still rather out of control…) However, the ash didn’t get to us at all, and all we really saw of the fire was a bit of smoke over some hills a ways away. As Andrew said, “never was a better time had by me and me hearties!”
