Sorry it’s been such a long time!

23 April 2006 No Comment

Hi guys, we honestly meant to write sooner, but we’ve been so busy, plus the Internet at our last hotel was a bit pants. So let’s backtrack first of all to Thursday. We’ve done a lot these past 3 days so we’re gonna do 3 seperate entries.

So, on Thursday we went to Mystic Seaport. This was kind of interesting in a weird sort of way. It was like an outdoor museum wth old boats and whatnot. There were people telling us stuff about sailors and fishing and stuff. We saw a lady gut a fish, and a guy sing sea shantys. Here are a couple of pictures:

This was the lady who gutted the fish. I have a video of her ripping its head off, removing the spine, and cutting out the eye balls.

This is one of the ships you could go aboard.

After the seaport we went to Mystic Pizza, but I’ll let Robyn tell you more about that.

Well I was gonna tell you about the fish, cos that was my favourite part of the day, but Beth already enlightened you on that. It was awesome. We learnt all about whaling too. They showed us how rope was made and there was a Planetarium that we went in. I’d never been in one before. It was cool. I am now able to navigate a ship at sea, using nothing but the stars and a compass, so should I ever find myself in a situation where I am on board a ship, all alone and the engine stops working – I’ll be fine. Don’t worry!

Mystic Pizza is the place where the Julia Roberts film is based. The pizza there is dang good.
