Summer, the ocean —-and Pirates!

 

Fact:

In the early 1700’s a very headstrong and tough girl from Cork, Ireland (she beat a man for making unwanted advances!) married into the adventurous world of Piracy — actually she married several pirates! After marrying her “dream” pirate in 1719, she helped steal a sloop and made a life of piracy in the Caribbean.

Dressed as a man she proved to be as good as many a man at fighting and stealing. After being caught and tried, she escaped hanging but her fate is unknown. As with many pirates, Anne Bonny’s story has become that of legend.
