Back Home

We had a great last day at the Mystic Seaport Museum. There was hardly anybody else there, so we had the undivided attention of all the guides. The best was Don, who was manning the exhibit about Captain Comer and the Inuits. He did his whole performance/lecture on sea chanteys just for us, playing the banjo and concertina. With his great resonant bass voice and wealth of knowledge, he really made our day.

For the third day in a row, we ate lunch at Seamen's Inne, this time sampling the seafood pie (me) and fish and chips (Rick). We had a great waitress today, too. Seems that with so few visitors, all the employees are more than happy to spend some extra time chatting.

We think Mystic might become our regular getaway place, since it's just the right distance from home and we really loved the Steamboat Inn and surrounding attractions. We're thinking of going back in the spring when all the museum buildings will be open and there will be more going on.

I uploaded a bunch of photos of the museum to Flickr today.
