I still can’t believe I didn’t see the (very discreet) “Private Property” sign when I took this photo of “Westport’s Newest Park” for Sunday’s blog:
But as many commenters noted – and Betsy Phillips’ photo below shows — it is indeed the property of the Bluewater Hill Association.
I still cling to the belief that the sign was not there — perhaps it was attending Easter services?
It’s nice to know too that the homeowners across the street personally fixed the crumbling seawall after Hurricane Irene, and replanted all those beautiful flowers. All for the enjoyment of everyone who walks, jogs, races, bicycles, skateboards, motorcycles or drives by.
Meanwhile, just a few yards north on Hillspoint, there’s this:
Several beach lovers — some living nearby, others not — are upset at the new, high, view-obstructing hedge erected by homeowners whose deeds include the private beachfront on the opposite side of the road.
No one denies anyone the right to do with their property as they wish. We’re just sayin’…
