A great memory from our childhood was the story of Peter Pan and those glorious characters the Lost Boys, Wendy, Tinker Bell, and of course, Captain Hook.

The Old Bow and Hook made use of free clipart at:,, and The cloud effect came from a personal photograph of mine of skies.

John, when sailing the seven seas in my previous career, I'm glad that I never had an encounter with a ship and its crew as perfectly depicted by you, 😁 .
I must say however that in my childhood days I've read (with red ears because of the tension) books with pirate adventures too.
Your splendid work does revive my childhood days to a certain extent now. Thanks for that!

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

A bit of a departure for you, John, but a well-done one, indeed. And better it be Captain James Hook at the helm and not Barnacle Bill. Lyrics like:

A special offer for today
I'll tell you what I'll do
All those who sign without delay
Will get a free tattoo
Why, it's like money in the bank
Come on!
Join up and I'll be frank
Unless you do
You'll walk the plank
The choice is up to you.

...are mostly preferable to those of Bills I heard while serving in the Navy.
