Local legend has it pirates roamed the treacherous, barren cliffs of Boulders Beach, until late yesterday afternoon.

Our intrepid paparazzo hid behind a giant boulder hoping to snap a shot of Pistol and Boo – alas they weren’t in town.

Caterers, fluffers, a small army of CGI manipulators, a handful of cinematographers and a black hole of stars appropriated the Lennox/ Boulders headlands in the name of art.

Or, filming for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie limited access to the Lennox headland yesterday.
