Our Lady in Mystic

Early this week, we visited the Gerda III, our Danish Rescue boat, which is moored at Mystic Seaport.  A gift from the Danish Parliament, Gerda was a lighthouse tender that ferried Jews to Sweden during the rescue in 1943.  The conditions in New York Harbor (traffic, wake, etc.) make it impossible for us to have Gerda nearby as origniially planned.  We are grateful that she has such a comfortable home in Mystic.
