*Note: Due to unforeseen circumstances Foto Friday may appear on Saturday of this week, depending on your time zone. Thanks for your understanding.*

I recently shared a few photos of some of the seaglass I collected this summer and fall during my long walks at Hicks Beach, where I have a cottage, and I mentioned in the post how much I enjoy walking the shoreline there. 

What I didn’t mention, though, was the alien-vampire-pirate I came across on one of my walks early in the summer, so today I thought I’d post a few pictures of this creature and share my thoughts about why he was there, hanging around my beach all summer and into the fall.

Yes, I know there are likely no such beings as alien-vampire-pirates. No, I have not been indulging in strong drink or drugs. Yes, I have been told that I possess an overly-active imagination. And yes, I do appreciate your willingness to suspend reality for a few minutes and indulge me.

There he is - just 'hanging around'.
I cautiously approached him for a closer inspection and found him just ‘hanging around’. “Nice cloak,” I said politely. He didn’t acknowledge me.
Not all crew members survived the crash landing.

Sentries patrolled the area, keeping it secure for the alien being who paid them in ‘fish’ currency, their favourite.
The alien-vampire-pirate created 'solar shells' that emit signals to attempt to contact the mother-ship. At night the solar-shells also act as beacons to lead the mother-ship to the runway/landing strip in the dark.

I think the alien-vampire-pirate built this landing strip for when the mother-ship arrives for him.

I believe that young alien-vampire-pirates are blue.

I had several great one-sided chats with him - I guess he is the shy, quiet type of alien-vampire-pirate.
I had several great one-sided chats with him – I guess he is the shy, quiet type of alien-vampire-pirate. He remained silent, even when I questioned him at length one day. I decided to try questioning him the next day at width.
Goodbye, alien-vampire-pirate! I hope you reconnect with your mother-ship before winter arrives at my beach! It was nice meeting you. Don't be a stranger!

Bahahahaha....
Bahahahaha….

You may tell me it’s a mere coincidence but I won’t believe you that as I was preparing this post tonight my power and the power in almost the entire town of Sackville flickered for a few minutes and then went out completely.

And here I sit, typing by candle-light, hoping my laptop battery doesn’t die before the power is restored, because if it does the latest draft of my post may disappear into Alien-Vampire-Pirate space!

Thanks for stopping by and indulging me by reading my silly tale that I just may turn into a children’s book one day. “The Alien-Vampire-Pirate of Hicks’ Beach.” I like the sound of that for a title.

Bye for now. And remember – don’t be a stranger.

  1. I think that would make a wonderful children’s book – perhaps told from the point of view of a child who discovers it while exploring the beach. What fun!

  2. LOL … so THAT was the cause of the power flicker !! I noticed it shortly before I retired for the night, early for me … as far as I know we didn’t lose power completely, just those few flickers … and yes, I’m up again now for awhile – regretting eating that pizza for supper ! 😉 … see you tonight … ♥

    1. A transformer (not the cartoon/movie kind), not far from my house kind of exploded, or that’s what it looked like to me – blue flames and showers of sparks! Quite a sight and it got repeated several times before the power finally was restored close to midnight. Vincent Price, I tell you! 😱 Now go back to bed. 💞
