Here, some ladies went ziplining after we had just finished our own ziplining adventure. My wife and I went ziplining, and it was a pretty cool experience. It was a ten minute ride up the easy hill, and then a one minute trip down, sitting in a seat along with some straps keeping people from falling out. It was pretty fun. Perhaps it could be more fun if a pass system could be worked out allowing for additional rides down the mountain, but I think there are probably other ways to seperate people from money.
We were in the First Mate's room, at the Ye Olde Harbor Inne by Claude. Claude was the Innkeeper. Our room was small, but we enjoyed the location near Downtown Mystic, CT. We walked downtown a couple of times. We got some sundaes at the drawbridge ice cream shop. We also on one of the days we were up there, went to Hartford, CT to see the state capitol, and we walked around downtown for a bit. It was pretty neat. We went to a Jewish naming ceremony for a great neice, and that was interesting. I suppose that involving the community in the child's life is important, and having some details about why names were selected makes one feel slightly more connected.

A guy by his lighthouse on a particularly rough day at sea. I don't know how this shot could be captured, or why a lighthouse keeper would subject himself to such conditions, even to open the door in order to get the shot, but it might have been photoshopped, or otherwise altered. The forces of nature represented by this photo are impressive.

This is one of the first lego creations seen when entering Legoland Florida. Legoland Florida is not yet officially open. I believe they are aiming for October 15th as a grand opening date. It most likely is very exciting for the teachers in the area. There were some teachers getting special educator passes, or whatever, who were located directly behind us in line as we got our passes. Supposedly, there are signs up (Billboards) saying how far away Legoland is located (20 miles to Legoland, 15 miles to Legoland, etcetra...)
