With all due respect to our friends down the street, there are seals at Mystic Seaport, too.
At least there was Wednesday morning of this week.
There is a colony of harbor seals near Fisher’s Island, so that’s one possible explanation. We’ve also learned that this is the time of year juvenile harp seals come down from the Arctic to explore (perhaps they’ve heard of our Frozen In exhibit?).
Either way, it doesn’t make a difference to us. What it means to us is that Mystic Seaport attracts all kinds. And in the harshest of winters, there’s no problem with that.
