Pyrates & History? But of course!
We were invited to share our knowledge o’ Pyrates, Privateers & History at one o’ our favourite places in S. Ontario – the Port Dover Harbour Museum! The summer camp program supplied 25 potential Powder Monkeys (a bloody smart crew, this lot) who listened intently and asked many good questions – even the Camp Counsellors got involved!
Since they were such a brilliant group, we let them all go with a Doubloon and a thank ye – and a very special thank ye to Angela Wallace, Museum Curator, who arranged it all.
If ye haven’t visited the Port Dover Harbour Museum, what are ye waiting for? It’s a great spot, filled with local Great Lakes Maritime & Fishing History, thousands o’ artifacts (many off the bottom o’ Lake Erie), maps o’ shipwrecks, the Pilothouse o’ a ship ye can walk into, great Volunteers to answer yer questions, and some great places for a walk, a meal or a cold drink afterward.
Don’t forget to join our mates on the River Rider Tour – history right on the water and a chance to see wildlife, natural beauty and a boat graveyard!
