A day at Mystic Seaport: The Museum of America and the Sea. A living history museum consisting of a village, ships and 17 acres of exhibits depicting coastal life in New England in the 19th century. Established in 1929 the seaport was one of the first living history museums in the United States, with a collection of buildings and craftsmen to show how work was done and life was lived. Chowder Day on the village green was in full swing during our visit (the chowder was delicious) and as the water was as smooth as glass, it was a day for reflections. This photo is of reflections of flags on a moored boat.
