I am going to the Tall Ship Festival in Channel Islands Harbor this Sunday afternoon, in scenic Oxnard. This will probably be followed by a romp on the beach, and probably dinner at "Pirates Grub 'n Grog" on Victoria Ave.
Here's a link to the Channel Islands Tall Ship Festival. There's going to be naval battle reenactment sails, aboard the Royaliste, which is a faithful replica of a real privateer! There's going to be land-based battle reenactments, a beer garden, vendors, pirates, swashbucklers -- and if I have anything to say about it, plenty of booty plundered.
Mmmm, plundered booty...
So if you're interested, let me know, and we can arrange a group trip up for those coming from LA and the Valley!
