I’ve Found Captain Hook!

IMG_1657I’ve found the real Captain Hook atop a dive shop roof in the Florida Keys! It even says so on his boat. OK, it’s the real plywood Captain Hook on full display for all to see driving on Hwy. US-1 through Marathon.

I know, you’re saying that Captain James Hook is a fictional character in the movie Peter Pan. The character is a pirate captain of the brig Jolly Roger, and lord of the fairytale village of Neverland… hmm, I thought that was Michael Jackson! 🙂 His name plays on the iron hook replacing his right hand, cut off by Peter Pan and eaten by a crocodile.

You can find this dinghy boat containing the real plywood Captain Hook at Mile Marker 53.0 oceanside. *Bonus: During Christmas they swap out Captain Hook with the real plywood Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer. Yes, down here he’s better known as Rudolph The Red Nosed Keydeer for obvious local reasons (Key Deer). 🙂
