more literary roadtrip pix

We visited the Preservation Shipyard at the Mystic Seaport to get an idea of the restoration process. We got to explore a ship currently being restored - the Charles W. Morgan.

this Quicktime movie shows Nome exploring the crew's quarters - you can hear a recording of talk presumably by one of the crew, which they piped into that section of the ship.

The flag in the shipyard - I made Nome salute it.

Nome checks out the stairs below deck.

Captain's sofa - the captain had pretty nice quarters

We surmised from the prisoner's ghostly pallor that she had been confined to below deck for at least a fortnight...

Living la dolce vita - we had lunch afterwards in town.
