We by no means are a outdoorsy family. As far as D is concerned camping consists of staying at a lowered starred hotel. Obviously I have a lot a work ahead of me. I am happy to say though, that we are going to take our first steps towards a true camping experience by staying at the Sea Pirate Campground in Tuckerton, NJ, as we take in the sights, sounds and good eats at Tuckerton Seaport.
While we are not truly roughing it, this will certainly be the Boys and D’s first taste of the “camping” experience and these cabins look like the perfect opportunity to introduce camping to the family. We will be staying, in cabins with bathroom and running water, but gone are all the little conveniences of the modern world we live in like Wi-Fi and God forbid television! It will be like we were living in the dark ages, who knows they might like it.
Part of the fun of staying at the Campground is that it is also really close to Tuckerton Seaport. The Seaport is packed full of a whole bunch of events and restaurants Some of the stuff at the Seaport that I am looking forward to check out are:
- Eat some Barbeque at Shorty’s or eat some seafood at Allen’s Clam Bar.
- Grab a tour of the Seaport in order to see a real working maritime village
- Privateers & Pirates Festival : If we are going to hang out at a Seaport we might as well as take advantage to see Captain Black and the Crew of the Valhalla will be at the port for a whole bunch of festivities.
Some of the cool things going on at the festival include:
Pirate Meet & Greet
Pose on the Plank Pirate Costume Contest for Adults and Children
Piratology 101: Learn about the Golden Age of Piracy!
Cannon Demo: Watch how to handle and fire a cannon. Volunteers will be needed to join the gun crew. Don’t be scared by the big BOOM at the end.
Scurvy Mutineers Sword Fight Show: A live steel combat show complete with action and laughs. Volunteers will be selected from the audience to join the mutiny.
Whip Show: Things will really heat up as tricks and skills are shown.
Pirate Pistol Duel Show: A stage show of how a friendly game of Liars Dice can go terribly wrong. Learn how pirates settle an argument.
Captain’s Mast Show: A funny show about how pirates managed crimes and other issues between crew members. There will be plenty of sword and pistol action!
American Water Puddles Van: Learn about water conservation, where the water locally comes from, how the water is treated and play interactive games where you can estimate your daily water usage
Watch the Parrot Pirate: Party with a Parrot that Talks Pirate
I really can’t wait to have some fun at Tuckerton, New Jersey with the rest of the Dancing Hotdogs family.
