A little background about your online Mystic Seaport tour guides…
A young at heart senior citizen, Trudi Busey began volunteering at Mystic Seaport in the spring of 2008. Born and raised in Sandusky, OH on Lake Erie, living or being near the water has always been a priority. Her casual style of writing about people, places and things to do at Mystic Seaport prompted her son to say, “I never thought my mom would be a blogger.” Well, surprise!
Mike O’Farrell is the Museum’s director of public relations. Raised just a few miles from Mystic Seaport’s main entrance, he’s been on staff for almost eight years. Among his favorite activities? Appearing on the Montel Williams Show and hunting ghosts aboard the Charles W. Morgan. Is it haunted? He’ll never tell!
A Southern California native, Erin Richard has been busy acclimating to Southeastern Connecticut and Mystic Seaport for a little more than a year now. Follow along as this Museum publicist blogs her way through the sights, sounds and changing seasons found at the nation’s leading maritime museum.
Mystic Seaport magazine editor Anna Sawin was once a Conrad camper and a Williams-Mystic student, which means she has spent way more overnights at the Mystic Seaport than most staff members. Favorite Museum spot? It’s a tie between the high dock of the Youth Training Building and the gazebo in the Memorial Garden.
