Mystic Seaport

Yesterday we wrapped up our tourist activities by going to the Mystic Seaport. It is a large complex with many ships to visit,many of which you can board and go below.  It's an outdoor history museum with a nautical theme.

It was just a matter of time before Left Brain tried to take over the position of Captain.

I could relate more to the everyday matters of the seamen, like the shopping and doctors office.

Good for what ails you I guess.
 I know it would have made me very healthy VERY fast if they were going to put them on me.
The "examining table" didn't make me feel any more comfortable either.
I'm guessing the bucket is there for the blood letting process.
The store seemed nice...of course, what store doesn't seem nice?

Here is the sewing room for the milliner...and I thought it was cramped sewing in the RV!

And of course, in a shipyard you have to have lots of rope and equipment on hand.

And the beauty wasn't just the ships and buildings, but the flowers that were found everywhere.

It was a sweet way to end our time in Mystic CT.  We will head further down the coast on our way to NYC.

Long Live the Queen of Ships

  1. Oh I just love your photos!! Left Brain looks so good at the helm of the ship. He just needs one of those captain hats with the big tall feather on it. I have to say that my favorite shots are the flowers. Especially those awesome blue morning glories. (I think that's what they are.) You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.
