The Harvey Gamage is docked right in the middle of the Mystic Seaport’s waterfront, acclaimed as the “nation’s leading maritime museum.” Thus, it has been quite easy to step off the boat and explore more of our American maritime history visiting historic ships such as the Charles W. Morgan, Joseph Conrad and L.A. Dunton; visiting the re-created 19th century coastal village; and special exhibits like the Mapping of the Pacific Coast. Our students even had a go at rowing the whaleboats through the Mystic fog. Not as easy as it looks.
A favorable breeze from the south west is the forecast for tomorrow, so if all goes well we will be bound for Stellwagen’s Bank to look for humpback whales. We’ll let you know our findings.
