Talk Like a Pirate Day Wrap Up

September 21st, 2010 by theAddison

Arrr, another Talk Like A Pirate Day has come and gone.  It was quite a festive event here with the Fernandina Beach Pirate’s Club out in full force for the afternoon and children scurrying about town on the Pirate Scavenger Hunt.

Our own One-Eyed Louie looked quite dapper in his pirate hat.  If only we could keep an eye patch on him but it was hard enough keeping the hat on him as he is a great flapping beast.

Maggie Doone had her own pirate gear on and was quite set for the day with puffy-sleeved shirt and bandanna.  We were sitting at a bar, minding our own business, when a woman came up to us and announced that my dog was spoiled.  I asked “whatever gave you that idea?”  Apparently it had something to do with Maggie sitting on a bar stool and wearing clothes.  Hey, I could never afford to spoil my kids when they were little, why not spoil the dog?
The day was such a success that we just had to make another in the Maggie Doone series of videos.  This is the story of a small pirate dog in a small pirate town, hanging out with fellow pirates and saying Arrr-ooo!  Enjoy!  Maggie Doone Talks Like a Pirate
What is next for the town of Fernandina Beach?  The Amelia Island Jazz Festival runs October 1st through the 10th.  We have Steve March Torme, one of the headliners at the festival, staying at the Addison.  The Amelia Island Autumn Fine Arts Festival is back on October 9th and 10th.  My favorite car show is on October 16th when the Amelia Cruizers Car Club take over downtown with a great display of hot rods.  Before you know it we’ll have Florida-Georgia Football Classic Weekend, Hallowe’en, Thanksgiving and Christmas. 
The year, she flies, my friends.  Grab a piece of it while you can.  Our Fall Specials have discounts up to 25% from October 1st right through December 21st as we encourage our guests to “Fall In Love With the Addison”.  Pick a Festival, pick a room and give us a call.  We hope to see you again soon!      .
