Lobsters and Chowder Tour 2008 - Day 13

Thursday was a day at Mystic Seaport.  Wow, this was tremendous and much more than we thought it would be.  The added benefit of seeing some of the classic old boats and tall ship yachts pull in for this weekend's show was quite a treat.

This is one of those private sailing ships coming in.  Mystic Seaport has been around since 1946 to preserve the wood ship building arts and history of the area and our country.

Late afternoon we finally exhausted all to see at Mystic Seaport and drove over to Groton, Connecticut and one of our country's submarine bases.  Here, the first nuclear submarine, the Nautilus, commissioned under President Truman and the first to sail under the North Pole.  Evan really loved this free and extensive exhibit of our sub technology history and future.

Eventually, a gallery of photos will be on the website so look for those announcements.  Also, no anonymous comments will be allowed to be posted.  All must identify themselves.  We have too much anonymous speech.

We are headed back west now and will be leaving New England today.  This has been fun sharing all of this with you and thank you all for keeping up on this blog.  So this is likely the last post until after we have returned home and the Lobsters and Chowder Tour has concluded.

It has been a pretty good summer, eh?
