Bicycling, Sword-Slashing Pirate

The first of the Gasparilla parades takes place tomorrow; the children's parade and fireworks are the start of a week long festival of parties and celebrations culminating in the annual Gasparilla Invasion and Parade of the Pirates next Saturday. Homes in many of Tampa's neighborhoods are sporting all kinds of pirate-themed decorations including flags, banners and door wreaths. This unique metal yard art was spotted on the lawn of a home in Hyde Park.

  1. Sheesh! How disappointing. When I saw this on the portal I was sure it was your portrait...then I learn it's just an ordinary pirate! ;-)

  3. We are always looking for unique and entertaining yard art. Think of us as you discover these treasures. We love Florida lawn decorations, it adds a bit of spice.

  4. Even on the portal, this made me smile already. And of course I had to find out what Gasparilla is. Sounds like a lot of fun! But how odd to celebrate an invasion of a pirate, even if it's just a legend.
