We had a fantastic morning at the Golden Hind in Brixham on Thursday 24th September. We all walked on to the deck and went inside where we learnt all about Sir Francis Drake and his crew. Did you know that pirates at that time actually wore flat caps not the pointy ones we all think of!
We then explored all of the ship. We went right up to the poop deck and saw the rigging although we did not climb it! We saw the captain’s cabin and there were lots of rats to be found around the ship.
We couldn’t believe it when we saw the treasure. Did you know that pirates often wore gold or silver because they thought it gave them good eyesight!
Before the visit we all thought that pirates were not real but we found out that they were! We are now becoming pirate experts we will tell you even more facts soon!
