During that surreal week between Christmas and New Years Day, when you are never sure what day it is and you are over full from too many Christmas cookies, we decided to take an afternoon off and walk to the Mystic Seaport.
If you have never walked to the Seaport from downtown, put it on your list of things to do. The walk down Holmes St follows the river and has beautiful views the whole way. Here is a picture of someones dock decked out for the holidays.
Our first stop was to see the 19th century magic show. Mr Davis was very entertaining, especially with his knot trick.
We stopped in the museum gift shop and were excited to see this sign they wrote up about Matt's grandfather and the family business. Look for our knots in their gift shops!
We stopped to see the Draken Harald Hårfagre, a viking longship that is staying at the Seaport for the winter. See our previous blog post by Josh for more on the Draken Harald.
Our last stop of the day was the lighthouse. We had a lot of fun taking this picture. If you have seen this lighthouse before, see if you can find the camera trick we used when we took this picture.
Mystic is a beautiful town to visit anytime of year.
