You are probably wondering what you are looking at. First the guy with the hat is my husband who is a Mayflower descendant. We went to Mystic Seaport to see the Mayflower II, which is a full-scale replica of the original Mayflower that brought the Pilgrims to Massachusetts. It’s in Mystic Seaport for repairs at the Henry B. duPont Preservation Shipyard. It’s wintering there and we will be checking on it to watch the progress. For those that aren’t close to Mystic, Connecticut, and would like to watch the progress too, here is the live cam website which also has updates and additional history about the ship. http://www.mysticseaport.org/locations/mayflowerii/
I tried to take better photos with my phone but the sun was not in the right place. So a digital camera is now on my Christmas list, and I will just have to keep going back to take pictures at different times to get better pictures. This is the stern of the ship with the round Mayflower emblem. Unfortunately as Mayflower II is currently being worked on, it is is not open for visiting. I plan on being there when it sails home to Plimouth and then going to Plimouth Plantation to visit it.
Mystic Seaport is called The Museum of America and the Sea. It has a village with wonderful indoor displays staffed with storytellers, historians, craftspeople, and musicians as well as the ships you can visit. My grandchildren love the Children’s Museum and the Playscape. I’m giving you the site as they have so many things for everyone, you just have to click around and see what you’d like. http://www.mysticseaport.org/
If you’re in Connecticut, visit Mystic Seaport. If you run into me, be sure to say hi.
