Priscilla Geigis, Director of the Division of State Parks and Recreation stopped by after the Opening Ceremony.

Volunteers and DCR staff shared Ernestina-Morrissey's story with over 500 visitors over the weekend.

On Sunday the ship’s dory participated in the Boat Parade to celebrate the Charles W. Morgan’s arrival.  For a few days Ernestina will not be the oldest ship in the harbor!

Clem Littleton (Son of Bartlett Boy Fred Littleton) and Alex Heavey head out to the Parade staging area.

Beautiful form after more than two hours of rowing.
