After the Morgan, the humans thoroughly enjoyed taking in the recreated 19th Century village and of particular interest to Sarah & Andrew was the Boardman Schoolhouse, built in 1765 in the town of Preston, Connecticut and named after one of their ancestors.Visiting Chas W Morgan at Mystic Seaport CT

The dog-people were patient, this was not all that exciting for them. As a reward, Doc McLean, Karen and Doc Shouse rented a van and took them to Seabrook Point. The humans would enjoy a nice meal (promising to get some “doggie-bags” for the dogs).The DogPeople at Baybrook Point, CT
