         The life and times of Mark and Paula Persons

Sunday, May 20, 2012:  Mark and Paula were off to the Science Museum of Minnesota to learn about pirates.
The Whydah Gally sailed the waters of the Atlantic capturing ships and treasure in the early 1700's.

One of the original canons which was recovered recently.
Paula got friendly with one of the pirates at Captain Blackfrog's Tavern. 

Hmmm....does Mark have anything to be worried about?

Pieces of eight....the coin of the day. 

Quote of the day: Pirating was a dangerous, and sometimes profitable, pursuit.  Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
