As we have been exploring our new surroundings, we've come across some pretty neat places. This week, we went to the Fishermen's Village. It is right on the water, and if you are there when the boats come in from a day of fishing, the fish that they caught are displayed for all to see on the docks.
There is plenty to do in the village, including an Aviation and Military Museum that we visited. Sam loved seeing all of the war airplanes, and the kind folks running the museum loved Sam, so they gave him an American flag. It was pretty cute!
After we walked around the Fishermen's Village, we took a sunset cruise in the ocean. Sam LOVED riding in the boat. He was so excited! He found a boy on the boat and immediately went to his side, excitedly asking question after question.
Sam-"Hi! A boat! Vroom!"
Boy-"Yes, we're on a boat."
Sam-"See a shark?"
Boy-"Nope, no sharks."
Sam-"See a turtle?"
Boy-"Nope, no turtles."
Boy-"Nope, no Nemo."
It went on like this throughout the boat ride. It was pretty funny to see him successfully interact with someone without me translating.
The other day as I was getting Sam dressed into a blue, plaid, button-up shirt, Sam said: "Cool shirt Mommy! A blue shirt! Cool!" This is the first time Sam has made any acknowledgement towards the clothes he wears, and I couldn't believe my ears when he said it. Is my toddler really growing up this fast? Yikes!
