The great thing about Connecticut is that it is small and you can get to a lot of places relatively quickly – a huge change from Texas. It is less than an hour drive to the coast from where Taylor’s family lives. The day after Christmas we went to Mystic Seaport which is a New Englandy version of Colonial Williamsburg for a “Mystic Lantern Tour”. We were led around through the village to different buildings where a play was being carried out. Mean old Mr. Hyde was ruining everyone’s lives in Mystic Seaport! It of course worked out in the end. I don’t have any pictures because they wouldn’t allow cameras – they don’t exactly fit into the time period. Lindsey and I got to carry the lanterns during part of the tour – a true honor.
