Today we took to the Sea, but not before being duly warned of the dangers of the deep. Namely, the pirate chompin' SHARK!
Sharks are the most feared predators of the ocean. Besides their regular senses, sharks also have electrosense that gives them an extra advantage in the water. Their snout can pick up faint electrical signals given off by even the quietest, best camouflaged prey. We played the "Shark Attack" version of Marco Polo. The blindfolded Shark had a bottle of beans that he shook while searching for his prey. The "Prey" also had a bottle of beans to answer with.
Every time the "shark" shook his beans the "Prey" had to answer back with a faint shake of her beans (the faint impulses she emits). The "shark" had to avoid the coral reef (the other players) while searching for the "Prey".
The "Prey" must stay in place while the "Shark" hunts her down then gobbles her up!
Sailing, Sailing Over The Bounding Main
Ah, the smell of the sea and the salt air in your hook maimed nostrils! I do love bein' a pirate! Today Papa took us to the lake and we enjoyed rockin' on the rhythm of the waves.
Avast ye land lubbers!
After disembarking from our "ship", we had a picnic at the campground.
Very appropriate place for a Pirate's Picnic don't cha think?!!
Yer's in piratin',
