Fun in Wilmington

Yesterday we went to the snake museum while Mom did laundry. Today we visited the USS North Carolina, which we can see from our boat. We loved all the ladders, guns, and passages. The best part about Wilmington is all the ice cream.


Hot stuff

"Squeal like a pig" hot sauce from the hot sauce store.
Conrad loves hot sauce and spicy food now. There was a bit of a tense moment during Grandma and Grandpa's visit to Charleston when we were having Korean food in a gas station (yes, really; it was better than you'd think) and he ordered a spicy stew. Something like, "His stomach will melt and he will become literally insane" was said (that's what I heard). When it came, it was very spicy. They were not messing around. Matt kind of shrugged doubtfully when he tasted it. But Conrad loved it and gobbled it up.

Things that go bump against your boat in the night

One night in Man Jack Cay, we heard a loud thump against our boat. We took out the high-powered flashlight to see what it was and there were thousands of these minnows and crabs teeming in the water. The crabs were trying to eat the fish, despite being smaller in size. We scooped up a bucketful of water so that Mark and Conrad could see them in the morning. We think the thump may have been a larger fish trying to eat the smaller ones and jumping against the boat.

Bahamian tooth fairy

Conrad lost his first tooth and in exchange got a Bahamian dollar. He didn't want to trade it in for an American dollar even though that means he may not get to spend it for a long time.
