Ocean Classroom 2020: Day 32

It has been lovely being docked here in Mystic, Connecticut. The seaport village is very quaint and quintessential Connecticut. We can see small stone buildings on the water and looking out across the Mystic river there is turning foliage. Today was our make and mends day, so we have had the whole day off to catch up on sleep and projects. I spent most of the day working on my ditty bag. Ditty bags are made out of old sail cloth, and it becomes very time consuming pushing a needle through the thick sail material. This afternoon I sat out on the bowsprit and worked on completing the first seam of my bag. Everyone has been enjoying spending our bubble social distancing time on land, as after we leave Mystic we will be underway for a larger amount of time. Roseway fits in here as well as we are surrounded by other beautiful old tall ships, some being much bigger as us!
