A Pirate's Life

Ahoy! If you know my family, you know that we're pirate people. We'd never pass up a grand high seas (uh, high bay?) adventure, even in the hottest weather. We joined Adam's mom, sister, four nieces and nephews as well as his cousin and her two children for the Pirate Adventures on the Chesapeake boat cruise. The kids all got their pirate nicknames and tattoos and we were off on a quest for hidden treasure in Annapolis Harbor.
We sailed around the harbor singing sea shanties, looking for clues, and even cleaning up pollution. The kids fought valiantly in an intense water cannon battle against a "bad pirate" on a rowboat who then surrendered the keys to the treasure chest. Each brave buccaneer took home a handful of plastic coins and gems and a thrilling tale to tell.

All the kids loved it, and if you live in or will be visiting Maryland I definitely recommend checking this out. Unlike some other pirate themed attractions which are geared more toward an older crowd, this is 100% kid friendly. The crew is wonderful and they make sure every child has a chance to participate in the action. What a fantastic day.
