About two hours from our house, is Mystic Seaport, Connecticut. It is a great place to experience the seafaring life that was such a part of life on the East Coast in the early years of our country. The photo quality isn’t great. They’re a few years old, and were taken with an old point and shoot I had, and then when my hard drive crashed, I had to save them from an on-line copy. But I think you still get a good feel for the place.You can see many restored homes and businesses as you walk through town.
There are programs and exhibits year round, but my favorite thing to do is walk along the waterfront in the summertime, and go on the old schooners and ships. Then take a walk down dusty streets with a fresh sqeezed lemonade, sit by the gazebo and watch the ships go by … with my three favorite sailors … Best,
