It was a good day to spend the day at Mystic Seaport. It was hazy,warm and,humid...but there was a nice breeze coming off the water on the Connecticut shoreline.
Mystic is such a beautiful area with so much to see and do. The scenery is wonderful everywhere you look.
In one of the buildings I spotted this darling doll bed. It was made by a captain while at sea for his little daughter. When he arrived home, he discovered that she died. He never went to sea again.
The Captain Morgan is the world's oldest surviving merchant vessel. It is currently being restored. It has an amazing history!
Will share some more photos as the week goes by. We chose the right day to take the grandchildren--before the tropical humidity really moved in!
Because the seaport is so large, it is impossible to see everything in one day...so we became members and will be going back again in the future. It's a wonderful place with lots of family-friendly amenities.
So starts the week...with fond weekend memories. Happy Monday and...
enjoy the day!
