You can tell that we’re getting close to Shrimpfest (two weeks away) because pirates start showing up in all of the shop windows on Centre Street.  Christmas on the River has put away all of their Easter-themed ornaments and brought out the treasure chests, pirate ships and sabers to hang on the tree.  Throw in some conch shells, a couple of shrimp and a peg leg and you’ve got yourself a party.  And that’s what it will be.  See you there.
