Final voyage for the Old Barge?

It’s all disassembled and packed up.

March 25, 2015 hence the snow still on the ground.

New Haven’s Old Barge, possibly the last oyster barge in existence, is heading back home to New York City.

It would have been nice if the powers that be could have managed to hang onto this bit of the city’s history, but at least it wasn’t just bulldozed.  Thank you to all the people who worked so hard to save it.

I brought Sofie by a couple of weeks ago so she could see it before it was gone.  She was fascinated with the entire history.  I didn’t expect that from a ten-year old, but then again, she is my kid.

I’m going to miss driving by the old girl.  One’s environment is made up of landmarks and this was always one of mine.

May your travels be in fair winds and following seas.
