Exploring the Fort

We have a couple of forts in our area and today we ventured to one that we have not been to before. The kids sat through the 20 minute educational film, though I think G confused the British ships for pirate ships. He kept saying “Look Mama! Pirates! Ahoy!”. It was a windy but beautiful day. Tomorrow is supposed to be just as beautiful… who knows what kind of adventures we’ll go on?

While there, we noticed that the flag that was flying had 15 and not 50 stars. Here’s what ushistory.org and Google have to say about that:

Huh. Who knew!

What I failed to do before we left was ask why they were flying that flag over the fort. Just another reason to go back and visit again!
