Mystic is an old whaling town. Stepped in the history of the whaling trade it is a seaside town with the largest maritime museum in the United States.  This is where we spent the day.

As you walk the streets you are thrown back two hundred years.  As you meander the town you see demonstrations of blacksmithing, told about historical medical practices as well as learning about school life during the 19th century.

One of the highlights was going aboard the Charles W. Morgan. It is the last wooden whale ship in the world. While there we learned all about life aboard the ship. The highlight was being there while they had a man overboard drill.

Another highlight was being able to take a horse drawn buggy ride around the town. Complete with a friendly canine in the front seat.

True to form we finished off the day with ice cream from Twister’s Ice Cream. As you can see mom enjoyed it and I did as well!Turning Point Images Mystic CT-83
