Avast, mateys, we'd be remiss if we didn't tell ye that today is Talk Like a Pirate Day, yaar! (Pirates, although often crass, smelly, and generally disreputable, were still some of the savviest sailors on the seven seas...and therefore ardent travelers.) The LA Times Daily Travel & Deal Blog has a mighty great roundup of maritime museums in California who are taking doubloons for the big day. But because the day falls on a Friday this year, lads and lassies from around the world, from Alberta to Antarctica, are planning on extending the celebration all weekend long. Check out this full list of events, grab your scabbard, and watch out, as always, for scurrrvy!!!
