Ahoy, Matey!

I mentioned yesterday that while we were in Miramar Beach / Destin, FL we took the kids on a pirate ship cruise.  Hmm...what to say?  The kids loved it.  The grown-ups realized it was not all it's cracked up to be.  Anyway, it was quite the experience, that's for sure...

There were 3 "pirates" on board.  Captain Cameron (not pictured) First Mate Tony (above) and Blackbeard (below).
Shortly after setting sail, we found a treasure chest!  Blackbeard ran ashore and retrieved it for the kids. 
Caroline was super excited about her gold dubloons!
What do you do when it's hot?  You pass out water guns and initiate a gun-slinging squirt fight, of course!  That was next on the agenda:

After a 2-hour trip around Destin Harbor, we were back on dry land, scurvy-free!  All in all I would recommend this trip only to the pirate enthusiasts or young at heart.  It was not terribly exciting, but the kids did have a nice time.
