Sail Away Argia

While we were away in Mystic, 
we took a 2 hour cruise on an 81' sailboat, 
The Argia
This was an amazing cruise with beautiful views of the 
Mystic River, Islands, Lighthouses and gorgeous Sailboats and Ships.

This lighthouse was renovated and is now a private home.

This was such a beautiful day and a beautiful sail!


  1. Looks like you two are taking advantage of enjoying life.

  2. Hello, the sailboat ride sounds like fun. I would have to take some sea sick pills. The scenery is gorgeous, I love the Lighthouse. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

    1. hi eileen, i am motion sensitive - they said you would only get sea sick if you have motion sickness riding in a car. they were right. one time, when we went through a large wake, i felt it a little but only then. i did fine, it was relaxing and fun!!

  3. Heavenly scenery and photos, Debbie. Love the sail shots especially.

  4. Oh, lovely shots. Living in a lighthouse would be cool. Actually one of my fantasies is living in a renovated firehouse. How cool would it be to have a pole to get to the first floor?

  5. Love the houses there and the two of you at the wheel it a hit:)

  6. Ohhh, a day on a sailboat!!!! And a beautiful day it was toooooo! Amazing! Simply amazing....

    Love the lighthouse-to-home. What a lovely spot.

    Mmmmmm, where was "the John"? >,-) I always have to know that, ahead of time. -grinnnnnn-

    Repeat, amazing time you must have had!

  7. Beautiful photos and cute sea, Debbie. It was a good walk and a great day out.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Good wednesday.

  8. Truly and your photos :)

    Happy hugs to you!

  9. What a beautiful way to spend a day. What wonderful views. What a cool house too.
    You and Chuck looks so happy standing there.
    What a very nice getaway.

  10. Oh, such beauty! And, look at you guys, still so in love.


  11. This looks like such a lovely adventure. The photos are gorgeous. I really like the lighthouse and can imagine it would be a beautiful home.
    Thanks for sharing and I especially love the photo of your hubby and you sailing that boat?? Blessings and hugs for you~

  12. You really are an inspiration to me. My family just needs to take some time and do something fun. Work, Work, Work. That is all we do. We live in a beautiful place and need to stop and smell the wildflowers and spot some swans. Although about swans: my brother in law works for the US Fish and Wildlife Service and is involved swan reintroduction in our valley. On the day before the morning release he comes to spend the night and we have swans sleeping in our garage in dog kennels. They really hiss when you get close.

  13. Beautiful photos! That would be fun! I've never been on a sailboat. I can only imagine what it cost to buy the lighthouse and make it a home.

  14. I love the lighthouse home! Beautiful. Wow, your pics are really cool. Thanks for sharing.

  15. How lovely that lighthouse home is ...

    Super photo's and a lovely one of the two of you.

    All the best Jan

  16. Such beautiful scenery! looks very relaxing and peaceful! I've never been on a glad you posted this! How fast did the boat get going?

  17. I went back and I've missed a few posts! I am enjoying ALL THE PICTURES of Mystic! I've never been there and it sure looks charming! I do remember the movie! Goodness mercy---all the DELICIOUS FOOD PHOTOS!---that ice cream looks amazing and I'd love to sit down and attack that bisque and the lobster roll! I love eating at places like that, outside, at picnic tables, with the fresh air and the sunshine and the seabreezes and the sound of the gulls chattering. Y'all have had a wonderful get-a-way, I'm so glad you got to go! The carnival pictures prior to your trip were very very good too---nice and bright and colorful! Sure enjoyed those.

  18. Fabulous cruise and wonderful photographs Debbie
