All the places he’s gone to, all the bakeries he’s visited, all the flavors he’s tasted, Captain Blackberry sure thought he had seen it all, yet nothing could prepare him for what he was about to encounter

Excerpt: Then one day, all his fears, simply disappeared. 

It happened in town, while walking around, down by the pier.
An aroma arose up his nose, he never experienced before. 
The delightful smell lingered out from a nearby bakery door. 

From the corner of his eye, there it lie: a warm fruity pie. 
It looked so good he knew he should go give this pie a try. 
From all its spice, it smelled so nice, 
He couldn’t resist but to have a slice

Quote: All is swell and life goes well with the smell of an ocean breeze. This he’d say to his crew everyday and to that, they all agreed.
