Time Capsule Mystic's Bascule Drawbridge by Sue Waterman

April 14, 2021 2 min read

Our workshop is footsteps from the Mystic River and an awesome view of the drawbridge. We see so many boats going up and down the river it's a non stop movie!  You can sit on the benches at the edge of the Mystic River Park, along the boardwalk. A great pastime while in between shopping and dining in downtown Mystic.

Many of us are seen running out of the shop with our cameras to capture some rarely seen ships and yachts that are cruising by or waiting for the bridge to open, especially Jill. She has so many photos that we decided to get them all in one place to share.

We also photograph lots of our knotty products with the river and bridge in the background. Very nautical!

Enjoy this collection or better yet come to Mystic and see for yourself.
