|Aboard the HMS Bounty-Belfast, ME|
Ever since our trip to LegoLand last month, Scout has been fascinated with pirates. It all started innocently enough with the LegoLand show "Battle for Brickbeard's Bounty." At first, I was convinced that Scout would not even sit through this show, so imagine my surprise when she sat so quietly with her eyes fixated on Brickbeard and Sawtooth, the shark. Upon our return home, Scout was still talking about pirates (and Sawtooth), so my mother sent us a link to a youTube video of the show. Scout has watch that video everyday for over a month. But that's not all...she calls herself a pirate, talks like a pirate, and she even smells like a pirate(sometimes)! And when she's not the pirate, her dolls are pirates.
So, it was quite fortuitous that a replica of the HMS Bounty (a vessel used in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies) was going to be docked in Belfast while we were visiting Searsport this weekend. Scout got to tour a "pirate" ship, and get her picture taken with a "pirate." Secretly, I was hoping that they would invite her to join their crew, sadly, they did not.
