Pirates find a party in Port Royal

Contest Entry#5- Churches in Port Royal, Jamaica
Hidden from most of the guide books of Jamaica is an interesting haunt for most of the former pirates that trolled the Caribbean -Port Royal.
Visiting old churches is a favorite way to really delve into the history of the people. St Peter's Church built in 1726 tells a bit of the raunchier side of Jamaica's past and will not disappoint.
Blackbeard and others had to do a bit of repenting for the merry making that went on in this city. After a long time at sea what awaited these sea-faring wanderers is captured in this interesting city.
This church is kind of a museum - like tribute to their wicked ways.
