What I Did on My Winter Vacation

Just got back from a great mini-trip to Mystic, CT where I gave a talk at the Mystic Seaport Museum. Always a treat. They put on a great event, with a good crowd despite some pretty unpleasant weather. And managed to hit a couple of great, historic inns for dinner, the Captain Daniel Packer in Mystic and the White Horse Tavern in Newport, where we went the next day to do research (read the log of U.S.S. Lawrence, Perry's flagship at Erie, in the Newport Historical Society. What a thrill to hold that!)

Here are some pics from the trip:

At the grave of Benedict Arnold's Great (?) Grandfather in Newport, RI
(I don't mean to suggest he wasn't great, just not sure how many generations back from Revolutionary War Arnold he was)
