Warm and sunny...

We had a warm and sunny holiday weekend with above normal temperatures.  New England used to be buried in snow by now.  The furnace would have been on a month or more by now.  Instead, it was tee shirt weather!

It was a great time to visit Mystic Seaport with the grands.

The Amistad is currently being worked on ...last summer we were able to board it.

See the Christmas tree on the top of the mast on this schooner?

Have you ever seen a steam yacht?  This one is spectacular and rare.

 The ship carvings were amazing...such works of art!

 They were mesmerizing!

 My favorites...

Have some more to share with you but it is time to start a new week.  Back to work, back to the gym, back to preparing for Christmas.  Hope that you had a lovely weekend and as always...

enjoy the day!

Sounds like a lovely weekend. Helen.

Reading your quote from Henry David Thoreau...those are tough words to live up to, but a worthy challenge.

Have a lovely day,
