"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

      In Mystic Seaport, Speight takes time to do some journaling in the early morning sunshine.

     Dan and Ethan, having been the first two to attain head rig clearance, snapped this photo of Gamage from the Mystic Seaport dock where they were ready to tie us off.

     Mystic Seaport gave us the opportunity to learn about the trades of a working seaport. We sang sea shanties, learned about blacksmithing, celestial navigation, and even rowed whale boats in the lovely afternoon sun.

     As we left Mystic, students really had time to become accustomed to life at sea, and the duties and responsibilities of being students and sailors. The weather has been dry and sunny so far, and it has accorded us many a lovely sunset and sunrise.
