Ark Encounter – Part 2 – The First Floor

Part 1 – The Drive Down

In December, my church made a trip down to the Ark Encounter in Williamsport, KY. Join me on Saturdays as we explore this majestic building.

Some of the animals that could have been on the Ark.

Looking Up – The boys thought it was funny to go up to the second floor and say high to me. This was right before the Youngest decided to throw his hat down to me.

This was right before you went up to the second floor. There was a model of the Ark and information about how truly big it was when Noah spent 100 years building it.

Join me next week for the tour of the second floor. You’ll get to see the door that was used to get in and out of the Ark and a llama.

Have a magical day,
