Portrait Of "The Captain"

Alexandria Bay:

By definition, a portrait should reflect the personality, likeness, and mood of the person. It should also tell a story, giving the viewer some insight into the one portrayed.

There are lots of River Captains in the 1000 Islands.  But when someone says hey have you seen Captain?  There is no doubt who they are looking for.... In the Bay there is only one Captain..... affectionately known by all as Captain F.B.  It really does not matter what the F.B. stands for, I am sure most of you know, or you can figure it out on your own.

The Captain is the oldest living pirate, dating back to the mid 1960's.  He is one of the best cooks that I know.  The Captain is a local personality..... and one of the most interesting people in Alex Bay.  The video below is my version of a portrait of "The Captain"
