Schooner Fest

Last weekend was Schooner Fest here in New London and you know what that means.

That's right. Mistah crossed the Big Bad Bridge so he could take photos of the schooners sailing down the river in front of Ledgie, with the sun shining behind his back.

Mistah and 20 of his best friends.

The problem, though, was that the schooners sailed in front of New London Light -- the world-famous New London Light -- then went on their merry way away from Ledgie.

But, hey, we're equal opportunity Lighthouse Lovers around here. And New London Light is fabulous.

And look how gorgeous he looks with this ol' girl sailing in front of him . . .

Made for eachother.

And then a couple of ferries joined the fun:

 The New London . . . 

. . . and the Mary Ellen.

Hey, Schooner Fest is not just for schooners any more.

But that schooner's a beaut.

And, yeah, that house.

This schooner was fab, too . . .

She took her turn sailing by the lighthouse . . .

. . . and then down the river . . .

. . . into the great beyond. But she can still see New London Light.

And then?

The moment we've all been waiting for.

Our very own Ledgie Light finally joined the show.

And the very best part about being across the bridge?

The gorgeous backdrop of New London.
