There are pirates in town. Did you hear? Yup. Real pirates. Honest! Just ask A. She'll tell you. We met 2 of them on Friday. This one here, he was a tailor. He told us a lot about the Whydah and how many pirates were on it: 150 on a ship that was 150 long and 50 feet wide. Spacious? Hardly! A kept asking if he was a real pirate. He kept shifting the question back to her, asking her what she thought. She just looked at him.
We saw so many artifacts from the ship. Sword handles, muskets, the bell of the ship-in its entirety, ship name and all, but the cannons were the kids' favorites. We even figured out how much they weighed based on numbers that were stamped on the top of the cannon. This one that C is standing by was just over 1500 pounds. Amazing! They even had the cannon balls by them to show the actual size.
Science Museum. But it was for a discounted member price, so we took advantage! Well worth it, too! I'm not sure when we would ever have a chance to see things like this again. The kids enjoyed it too. They were really into it for a whole hour, which says something for 2 five year olds! Aaargh, Matey! Watch your treasures!
