My Outer Banks Vacation Part Three

Today I turned into a true fisherman, a true golfer, and even better, a true marine biologist.  Those are three of the adventures I encountered today.

First, in the morning, I went to do something I’d never done before.  Can you guess what it is?  Answer this riddle:

 In my process, you put stuff  on me, you also throw some string out. 

You know what it is now?  Yup– fishing!  That’s when I turned into a true fisherman.  Can you guess what our bait was?  Frozen squid!  Yup, I know that’s not the bait you expected, eh?  You probably expected worms or flies or some other fishing lures.  Grandpa and my cousin Gabi took me along.  Here is a picture of us at the fishing pier:

 Next, we went somewhere else with a lot of fish in it — the North Carolina Aquarium! Want to learn what I learned?  Take the short quiz below:

  1. What shipwreck went down near Hatteras Island?
  2. What stingray is the most popular kind?
  3. Do otters live in forest areas or wetland areas?

Answer Key:

  1. USS Monitor
  2. Atlantic Stingray
  3. Amazingly, river otters can live in both places.

Here is a picture of the Shipwreck of the Atlantic exhibit.  Note: It was during a special presentation.

Last but not least, I turned myself into a true golfer at a pirate golf course.  Arrghhh!!!!  Sorry, I was just doing a bad pirate accent. Anyway, we didn’t really sword fight and all that, we just got things into holes.  One part was a pirate prison and it was really creepy.  One time, smoke came out of it!  Here’s a picture of all three of us at the golf course — me, Eli and Gabi:


See you tomorrow!

    I was amazed to know that any kind of stingray was *popular*! Outer Banks Vacations are the greatest – enjoy.

    Wow Miles, what a day!

    The last time I went fishing in Florida I *caught* a stingray! Needless to say, my dad took it off the hook VERY carefully.

    Keep on rockin’
    Your friend from AAP,

    Ah, what fun!

    I’ve always wanted to visit the outer banks….will you be going to Kill Devil Hills?

    Dear TriSec,
    Believe it or not, we actually went to Kill Devil Hills just yesterday. We went to the Wright Brothers Memorial for a while.

    Day Four’s entry, which is going to be put up today, is going to include information about that. We’re going to post it later. See you soon.
