Went on a couples trip to Mystic Seaport in CT with my girlfriend and her guy. It was okay. Maybe it’s better if you’re a kid. It was pretty kid-oriented. I’m not very kid-oriented.
It was about $26 to enter. Kind of a steep entrance fee, but it supports ship rebuilding and historical preservation. Still, kind of a bit much for a place that’s open year round. I probably just don’t appreciate historical education. Any way. There are food-related things.
Here is a ship that’s being rebuilt. It gets repaired a lot. Or something like that. There are such things as gribbles that eat wood. Or maybe they were called something else. But it sounded funny.
Food. There was only one place open when we went. Prices were decent – not jacked up museum prices or anything. Order here.
Pick up nyah.
Albany John got a fish sandwich and some onion rings. Good fry job on the onion rings.
I got a salad. Some greenery, goat cheese, and soggy flavored walnuts. Nice to get some vegetation, though.
My girl and her guy got the “nachos” because it was like a $3 side to accompany their sandwiches. holy moly. If you want bang for your buck, this is where it’s at.
The nachos were fried triangles of wheat dough, so it was more like fried dough. That was kinda soggy and crispy at the same time. It came with two mega huge cups of Hormel’s best chili (har har) and some velveeta cheesey dip. Oddly addictive.
Hey, here’s what a kitchen looks like on a fish catching ship.
Map! Of fishing areas! In Canadia! I’m part Newfie, so I liked this bit of my background.
Old school dining room. Man, houses used to be dark. But oh-so-proper.
Anyone else ever want a canopy bed as a kid? I think it must be a girl thing. But I guess it was probably more necessary than cute way back when to keep heat in.
There were mussels growing on these docks. Mmm. I resisted eating them, though.
Nother boat. This one was in the water.
Now we’re talking my style! Oyster info!
Different ways to harvest oysters. Man, I wish I could get in on that.
What’s the larges oyster you’ve ever had?
Oh, then Albany John bought penuche fudge. The gift shop was way overpriced otherwise. Overall, it was a nice day to hang out with friends, but I’d probably rather not go again. Or maybe just go to a nice park and roam around instead.
