PIRATES - Going for the ARRRGGGH!

Today the folks and I attended the Pirates exhibition at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science in Denver. It was part of the month long reason to celebrate - dad's 91st birthday.

The exhibit is excellent. It incorporates items that were found at the site of the sinking of the Whydah off of Cape Cod along with history of pirating and the impression that you were on an interactive theme park ride. It was lots of fun.

We took advantage of the local hotels offering room and tickets for an overnight stay and that worked out great for us. It was far too hot to do it in a day trip for dad, so we stayed at the Fairfield, had dinner at Chili's and enjoyed the AC in the room.

I was not allowed to take any photos inside the exhibit so the ones here are of Loopy dressed for the occasion and snapped with a pirate, a sabre tooth tiger head and a very large chicken foot (errrr, T-Rex foot).
