Down by the Sea

We went to Mystic Seaport for a family trip!
Enjoy the pics!

What a good big brother!

This place is really big!

Following Daddy

The Amistad.

Q: how does one stop a bike like this?
A: Very Carefully

A Front Piece


A boat-wanna-be.... :)

Rigging

The Sabino (in the back)

The Littles in front of the Amistad

The Littles and I.

Random photographic creativity.

Where to next?

Rowboats up close

My parents!!! :)


Jeremiah atop a 600 year old tree.

Anchors away with me!

The Charles W. Morgan.... last surviving wooden Whaling ship.
The Morgan sailed for 80yrs- 37 voyages, up to three years per voyage.


It will take 3 years and 8 million $$ to restore the Morgan.


Come aboard the Morgan... just climb 4 flights of stairs!!!

Now I'm scared of heights, but as you can see, I am aboard the Morgan... how was this done???
My Curiositiy, love of history and photo-itch won out.


Behind the littles is a huge oven thing... for boiling down whale blubber.


Daddy and his princess

We ended our day with a trip to the Treworgy Planetarium. We watched a 30minute show and learned to locate several stars and Jupiter!!

Then we headed back home!

We had a great time, and hope to go back sometime again!!
God Bless,
