With no on-track activity scheduled today at Lime Rock, I took a side trip over to Mystic and made a visit to Mystic Seaport. I had originally planned on taking the train into New York City, but given the unpredictable weather, I didn't want to get trapped in the rain relying on train schedules to get back. Next time.
If you're unfamiliar with Mystic, it is home to the Mystic Aquarium and Mystic Seaport. What is fascinating about the seaport is it is an actual working museum. As you walk around, people are hard at work restoring the ships and boats using original working methods and techniques. It's an amazing place.
