Four years ago I brought Lucas to Pirate Adventures in Annapolis. His vivid imagination overwhelmed him and he couldn’t enjoy the adventure. He sat closely to me on the boat, clutching my handbag so that the pirates couldn’t steal it.
It was a beautiful summer day, perfect to enjoy Annapolis. I knew Penny and Oliver would enjoy the pirate experience so after four years we made our way back to Pirate Adventures. To my surprise Lucas remembered every detail of that day four years earlier; how he tripped in the parking lot and scraped his knee and the things I said to ease his worries and keep a smile on his face.
Showing off his pirate strength to board the ship.
Lucas, being the oldest boy, was treated to a lot of attention from the crew. He was selected to help hoist the flag. But before hoisting it, the crew member decided to try and hoist Lucas. You can tell by his expression he is very amused.
Aye Captain, X marks the spot!
Avast! I spy the first clue!
Reading the first clue.
Blasting the thief who stole the keys to our pirate treasure!
The treasure is found!
Lucas has the privilege of having the first taste of the pirate grog. Grape Fanta is the verdict.
Arrr, delicious pirate grog and a great new memory of Pirate Adventures!
