Mariner's Museum Library

So today in Pirates class, we all took a trip to the Mariner's Museum library. Well, some of us. Quite a lot of people didn't show up. Probably because it's Friday. Hopefully those of us who did go will get extra credit or something.

I didn't realize just how close the Mariner's Museum is to the campus. I could probably walk there if I wanted to. This is pretty cool because the library has the greatest number of maritime books in the world; over 80,000 I think. Also, the librarian is a CNU graduate and apparently he helped do research for the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. So there's some nice trivia for you all.

We spent like only half an hour there though. And ugh, it smelled. Especially the rare books section, which has books that were printed in the 1600's and 1700's. We were breathing in hundreds of years worth of mold. All I could think of was that my mom would not be able to survive being in that library.

And that's about it. Also pirate-related, they're going to show POTC 3 on big screen in the parking lot near my dorm tonight, so maybe I'll ask Alex if she wants to go. If not, I guess I'll go by myself. Too bad I don't have a lawn chair or something. :/
