"really got a kick out of seeing the rigging site on the river."
We found the area to be interesting. I enjoyed the museum. I liked seeing the items found in the vessel and really got a kick out of seeing the rigging site on the river. My son had fun chasing the hinny chicken and filming the event. My family had a relaxing and informative day.
