On Sunday afternoon, Sue and I had lunch in the town of Mystic, Ct. and then took a short ride to the village of Noank, Ct. Along the way we spotted a nest of ospreys which is in the first picture. The next pic is as we were arriving in Mystic and as always the traffic is heavy and slow moving along Main Street. I took a picture of Carson's Store which opened in 1907 and is still in business today. Back in 1975 this store was one of my customers when I worked as a sales rep for Frito-Lay. The inside still looks like it did back in the 1940's and 1950's. The big yellow house was built in 1884 and is typical of houses in Noank. Next are a couple of pics of the water and a tour boat returning to Noank. The next pic is of the Latham-Chester store from the 1800's which now serves as the Noank Historical Society. The plaque makes note of the fact that Amelia Earhart was married in Noank in 1931. The next pic is of a house that has a "widow's walk" on the roof. Many old houses near the water have these. It is said that in the whaling days when men were out to sea for long periods of time the woman of the house would use these to look to the sea to see if their husband was returning. Many men were lost at sea and did not return...hence the name "Widow's Walk". Finally, a couple of old geezers wanted their picture taken so we accommodated them.
