A beach photo has to be pretty spectacular to make it onto “06880.”
John Videler‘s sunset shot of Compo Cove — taken from Old Mill Beach — sure is.
The other night I was swimming at Old Mill with my 10-year-old daughter at 7:30 p.m. high tide. It was almost dark, and Old Mill is always perfect. I said, “so what do you think?”
She said, “Dad, this is paradise. We are so lucky to live here.”
And, John adds, the late artist/writer Tracy Sugarman once told him, “You never have to leave Westport for a vacation. Your vacation is right here.”
As an added bonus, John sent along a Compo Cove shot taken by his father, Cor Videler — a very talented photographer himself.
The sky and light always look different.
Thankfully, the scene itself seldom changes.
