Tomorrow is the last official sailing day (as scheduled) of the 38th Voyage. And it's just ten days left until the ship is back at Mystic Seaport. From the intinerary at mysticseaport.org:
- July 28-30 — Sailing window to New London.
- July 31, August 1-2 — Day sails off New London (no public passengers)
- August 6-8 — Sailing window to Mystic. The ship will be towed from New London to Mystic Seaport. An arrival celebration will be held on Chubb’s Wharf to welcome the ship home.
Meanwhile, here's a couple of photos I took yesterday visiting the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. I would have gone aboard the Morgan, but the line was at least a forty-five minute wait. In the photo looking up the Cape Cod Canal from the bow of USCGC Eagle, the Morgan looks a bit small in comparison. It's an illusion, I promise... The ship is not shrinking. I also visited the shore exhibits which were winding down for the day, though they tell me they had a big crowd earlier. Poor "Spouter" the inflatable whale was down for the rest of the afternoon due to winds, but I noticed that the furled umbrellas above the tables nearby (see photo) made nicely scaled "squid" for his dining pleasure.
