New England Seaport - Mystic

If you've ever visited Connecticut, you may have made a stop at Mystic to enjoy its historic seaport, quaint shops and aquarium. Every August, the town of Mystic holds an outdoor art festival in which I participate. It gives me a great chance to visit after the show closes each day, take some photos and then do a painting or two when I get back to the studio.
This scene is part of the seaport. The sail ships in the distance will have to pass through a drawbridge to get to the ocean. I love the lone rowboat anchored in the foreground. It's been left to mark the place where the owners keep their sailboat. When they return from a day of sailing, they'll leave the larger boat there and take the small one home.
