    You must visit the Mystic area this December! A new addition is the lobster trap tree in nearby Stonington decorated with uniquely designed colorful buoys! Artists, children and others decorated the buoys, the variety of artistry is amazing!

    The tree is made out of lobster traps and you can walk inside it! The view from inside is awesome. Jill macraméd a bunch of buoys with her knots. She, Matt and other organizers spent a night tying loops on all of them so they could hang on the tree. The tree is located at the Stonington Town Fisherman Docks.

    The lighting was a fun event and now you can visit it every day through January! Thank you Westerly Ocean Community Chamber of Commerce!

    Jill said the macramé took a long time to tie for each buoy. The results are great though!
