CHARLES W. MORGAN RETURNS

Mystic Seaport’s 1841 whaleship, Charles W. Morgan  returned from her historic 38th Voyage on Wednesday to her permanent berth on Chubb’s Wharf at the Seaport. Under tow, the Morgan passed through the drawbridge in Mystic before 5:00 pm escorted by a flotilla of support and spectator vessels. Hundreds were on hand at the seaport to welcome the ship home.

The historic whaleship comes into view while going through the drawbridge on the Mystic River on her way home.

Noyes School of Rhythm

PORTLAND – In a leafy woodland setting by a lake, the Noyes School of Rhythm carries on a 95-year-old tradition. During their stay each summer, ladies discard their confining contemporary clothes, slip on diaphanous tunics and assume Greek names like Pegasus, Selene, and Persephone.

Noyes-School-of-Rhythm-15The experience is uplifting and for many a way of passage from childhood to adulthood returning each year to celebrate all life has to offer.
