Goodwin College Hosts the Half Moon

Goodwin College did it again. College President, Mark Scheinberg, and his team are marketing masters. They know how to work the public relations machine and they have a wonderful network of friends and supporters. Goodwin has made a big splash with their East Hartford expansion. That is all good for the community. Watch closely because they will show you you get it done. The latest demonstration was a riverside open house to celebrate the return of the Half Moon, a replica of Henry Hudson’s ship. The ship was open to the public for part of its visit, but tonight, access was reserved for various friends of the Goodwin community.

The college has generated a fair amount of buzz by bringing the ship back to their new Connecticut River campus for the second year in a row. A crew sailed the ship from its home river, the Hudson, in New York. The crew answered questions while guests toured the boat. You could handle examples of the instruments that Hudson and his crew used 400 years ago while exploring the New World. You could also learn the origin of the term “knots” and get a look at the galley. The view of Hartford from the dock is spectacular. A band planned on the lawn while folks mingled and enjoyed cocktails and snacks. In true Goodwin fashion, dessert was straight from a Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream cart. Bravo.

@trailrunningmom led another successful #Yoga at #Sunset for the #boltonlandtrust This year's venue was the #BoltonHeritageFarm It's been a tradition to move to a new spot each time. I got my first #cyclocross ride of the year in too! #yogini #yogi #shavasana Sightseeing on my second favorite road in #Connecticut #grassyhill #cycling #bicycle #sevencycles #horstengineering Camp was swell! @thecubscouts @boyscoutsofamerica #cubscouts #boyscouts #junenorcrosswebster I visited the new HQ of the @appalachianmountainclub that is under construction at 10 City Square in #Charlestown I had to ride by the #BunkerHill Monument at the end of the #FreedomTrail #Boston #sevencycles First time at the People's Forest Trail Race since 2011. This first image is the look of a dejected man who lost 25 minutes with a wrong turn on a big descent. That's costly in an 11 kilometer race. Even worse is that @trailrunningmom is the one who led him (and two other runners) off course! They survived. It was a nice day on the #FarmingtonRiver. #trailrunning #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders πŸƒπŸ»β›°πŸ† Another great #sunset at #windingtrails Two distant pre-swim thunderclaps turned the race into a #Duathlon which suited me just fine! It's nice to not come into T1 with a two minute deficit. #Triathlon #mountainbiking #trailrunning #teamhorstsports Once again, @trailrunningmom took the cookie prize for winning the special summit competition at the finish line of the #shenipsitstriders #SoapstoneAssault Here is a picture of a picture of myself taking a picture. @cwoodside59 put together a nice piece for the @ctforestandparkassociation quarterly. I'm looking forward to my next #carfreecommute #selfie #bicycle #windingtrails Kid's #Triathlon
