On Saturday, June 13th, the town of Damariscotta, Maine was invaded by Pirates.

The town was well defended by cannons and armed militia men.

However, the Pirate ships would not turn back.  And the Pirate invasion could not be stopped.

The town was looted….to benefit the Lincoln County Family Holiday Wishes organization.    I was impressed by the event.  It seemed that the entire town was dressed up.  I even spotted a Pirate Dog.

And the costumes were not of poor quality, these were theatrical costumes, not the Wal-Mart Halloween variety.

A great event, for a great cause,  in a great town.  If you want to see amazing photos of the event, click here and here.

    Hi Darlene,
    I found a link to your site here http://gregcookland.com/journal/2009/06/pirate-rendezvous-in-damariscotta.html – which I found by Googling “Pirates Damariscotta”. Your pictures are absolutely amazing, they really capture the spirit of the day.

    Thank you! Greg contacted me to see if he could post some pictures of the event and I gladly sent him a few, so I’m grateful it sent some new people to my blog. I’m very curious about what you do. I don’t sell anything, except my photography services and images, so I’m unsure if what you’ve got going on would be helpful to me. Let me know if you think it would.

    Darlene,
    I sent you an email with some thoughts on how you can rank higher on Google for some of your other services.

    Let me know if you didn’t receive it, and/or if you found it helpful.
