On the Santa Maria

Jennie and I provided some color for a party on the Santa Maria. It was an interesting experience. The hosts originally figured that we would just be some people in costume that the ship rounded up. Instead, we literally wrote the book on the Santa Maria (specifically, we wrote the interpretive manual).

Everyone wanted to pose for a picture with the pirates. Here's one of me with the birthday girl (her 30th) and one of Jennie. The older attendees wanted to know about maritime life. It was a little confusing - should I answer based on the ship or based on being an 18th century pirate? I ended up doing a bit of both.
