Saycation – Mystic Seaport Community Carol Sing

This was something like the third or fourth time that I went down to Mystic Seaport for their Community Carol Sing. Admission is normally $23 (senior discount) but this weekend it was free with a non-perishable canned good item food donation (All contributions are donated to and distributed by the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center.). I went with a friend and we wandered around and then went to the carol sing. After a while we grew tired of the caroling and walked back around the seaport, the sun was getting lower but the crowds were all over at the carol sing.

This photo (If you click on the photos you can see full size pictures) was taken from the I-95 scenic overlook about two thirds of a mile away.

Notice the lanterns for the Lantern Light Tours
Join us for the 36th annual theatrical production of Lantern Light Tours at Mystic Seaport. Set on Christmas Eve in 1876, the play unfolds in the Museum’s historic buildings and vessels. Visitors of all ages will enjoy seasonal delights that include a horse-drawn carriage ride, the beautiful glow of lanterns that light the way and, just perhaps, a visit with old St. Nick! at Mystic Seaport.

The Mayflower II is undergoing restoration for the second winter...

Since it was a Community Carol Sing…

  1. Thanks for the lovely pictures, Diane. I absolutely loved this part of Connecticut and we visited it often from our home in the Boston area. We still have family there, however, so we will be back. Now in California, I do miss it very much....well maybe not winter :)
