For us, first on the list was to decorate the rope wreath on the Mystic Drawbridge. Matt and Jill got out there with their ladder and wagon and in no time it was ready to greet visitors for the season.
As always one thing leads to another and the gnome buoy idea developed. You can make this yourself, all you need is a lobster buoy, hat, some kind of nose and some twisted line. To get you started, here is an Instagram video Jill made on making her gnome.
Every year, across the street, we get to watch the raising of the Mystic River Park holiday tree. The riggers from the Mystic Shipyard do a great job!
Santa arrived Saturday on the tugboat John Paul. Caroling, music and conversations with Santa all afternoon on the green.
