We visited the Ernest Hemingway House yesterday. We jotted down some facts that we learned but Madelyn (and Molly) were most interested in the cats!
Hemingway House by Madelyn:
First we got our tickets. Then a cat walked up to us. Next we went into the house. We saw a typewriter and his fishing pole and a model of his lighthouse. We went upstairs and saw his bed. He put two twin beds together and put a gate from a church as the headboard. We got to give a cat treats on the bed. Then we went into another room and saw another cat. There are 53 cats. Half of them have 6 toes. His first cat’s name was Snow White. The cats are really soft. He wrote every day for 6 hours. He wrote 500 to 700 words a day. He had four wives.
Hemingway House by Molly:
Today I learned some things. The first thing I learned was that Ernest Hemingway was a large man. He made a king sized bed. He put together two day beds. Then when he went to Spain he got a church gate for the headboard. The next thing I learned was he was a writer. He wrote from 6 am til noon every day. He wrote 500-700 words every day. Then I learned that there are 53 cats there. About half of them have 6 toes. One of the cats bit me when I was petting him. His first cat was named Snow White. The last thing I learned was that when he installed his pool there was no running water so they dug a path from the pool to the ocean and put a pipe so the ocean water would just flow through and into the pool. His first wife had the pool built. He had four wives. I really enjoyed the Hemingway House.
