Hello World!

My name is Chelsea and I am the new social media volunteer for American Seafarers. I am a digital media & design major at UConn with a minor in communications, so social media is something I use almost constantly. Please feel free to ask any questions about me or my involvement with American Seafarers as I will be happy to answer.

 

CT Maritime Festival and the USS Ramage

So Elyse and I took to kids to go see the USS Ramage that is docked at Ft. Trumbull in New London. Unfortunately we should have camped out over night to get in line this morning. The line to get in approximated a quarter of a mile long, and the wait was something like 5 hours. We couldn’t ask the kids to wait in line for so long, so we changed plans and went to get a late lunch instead.

Elyse managed take a few pictures from from the other neighboring pier, while I managed to forget to take any.


For lunch we went to Castello’s in Niantic. It’s a relatively new restaurant, and it’s rather fantastic. It’s an Italian restaurant like many others, but has its own interpretation of the standard Italian fare. Everything is so very fresh, and it’s really hard to stop yourself from eating everything put in front of you. It’s on the corner of pattagansett and hope st., across from the school. Now I am letting it all settle before I have to hop in the car and drive to DC later tonight.
