After the fun tourist days in Manhattan, we harbor hopped along the Connecticut shore to various anchorages and included stops at Fishers Island and Block Island. Our favorite location was definitely Mystic Seaport Connecticut. A restored boat building village is a "life-size" walking museum, including several large and many smaller wooden vessels. One of the largest is the Charles W Morgan built in 1841, the oldest commercial vessel still afloat in the world (only the USS Constitution - which we would soon see in Boston - is older).
To our delight, Frisky was given a dock directly behind the Morgan, and because we were docked there, we could wander the village anytime. Additionally, unknown to us when we reserved the dock, that weekend was the Mystic Sea Music Festival. We enjoyed the many performers singing various Sea Shanties, and the staff demonstrated how sails were raised and tasks performed on the sailing vessels using the sea shanties to keep rhythm and make the task easier. It was definitely a fun weekend. We even found time to take a bike ride up the Mystic River to see some of the many beautiful ship captain's homes there. And of course the Mystic Pizza restaurant is still there (famous for the Hollywood movie "Mystic Pizza") so we had to enjoy dinner there.
