Another Blog of Interest

At first, I was primarily attracted to this blog because I was interested in seeing how the restoration of the Charles W. Morgan was going at Mystic Seaport. The Charles W. Morgan is the last surviving wooden whaling ship in the world, and as such is a national historic landmark. She was built in 1841 in New Bedford, MA and retired from service in 1921. She was acquired by the Seaport and has been one of the focal points of the museum, but has become "hogged" because of structural issues.

But I digress...

Matthew Housekeeper has posted an interesting blog about Long Island Sound, the surrounding area and the history and life on the Sound. As you can tell from the picture above, it's entitled "Soundbounder". Matthew has posted some really great information and pictures to tell the story of Long Island sound both now and in the past - well worth a look. He is also concerned about the overall ecological health of the Sound and access to this body of water - an increasing problem for all of us, everywhere.
