"Ahoy", Thursday was International Talk Like a Pirate Day and down at the Tradesmen's Centre Deidre Clarke, a keen supporter of the day, went all out with pirate hats and paraphenalia.
The shop had a pirate display in the window and even a 'treasure trove' of gold (chocolate) coins on the front counter and customers were invited to help themselves.
On International Talk Like a Pirate Day devotees greet each other with "ahoy" not "hello" and dress up in pirate costumes and converse in 'pirate'.
This crazy, fun day was established by John Baur and Mark Summers from Oregon in the United States which started as a joke between the two friends.
It gained exposure when they sent a letter about their invented pirate day to the American humor columnist Dave Barry in 2002, who liked the idea and promoted it in his column.
The media coverage of the holiday in Mr Barry's column ensured the event is celebrated internationally.
