Oh My 06880 — Photo Challenge #63

It wasn’t pretty — last week’s photo challenge, that is.

I don’t mean the results (though only Jackie Spencer, Barbara Sherburne and — sort of — Tom Turnbull knew the answer).

I mean the photo itself. It showed the graffiti and garbage that greets anyone driving or walking underneath I-95, on Franklin Street. Click here, if for some reason you’d like to see that grody sight.

(Bonus question: Who is responsible for that property: the town? State Department of Transportation? No one seems to know.)

This week, we go back to pretty pictures. If you recognize the image below, click “Comments.”

  1. Behind the library along the river walking up to Levitt Pavillion?

    Sherwood Island? Old Mill? Kinda looks like the library but it’s not the river…

  3. Kathi Sherman

    Perhaps Burying Hill?

  4. My first thought is burying hill… But I’m thinking long shore over by the marina

  5. Hey. I learned a new word!! Grody!

  6. Sharon Paulsen

    Longshore sailing school, boat launch area?

  7. Barbara Sherburne '67

    I never heard the word “grody” before either. I had to look it up. I’d saying this is Burying Hill.

    Off Hillspoint Road, not far from the Beach

  9. Burying Hill beach

  10. Good job, Kathi, Rich (first thought), Barbara and Alice – it is indeed Burying Hill. If you keep walking in the direction of the photo, you’ll hit Harvey Weinstein’s house.

    Wahooooo! All those years driving on 95 has paid off, baby!

    My first thought was Burying Hill too. Good Job Everyone!

    By the way Connecticut is known for it’s rocks.
    ‘It grows rocks’ to quote a family member.
    Notice all over CT the stone walls in the forests. That was land cleared for farming and the farmers harvested a lot of rocks so get used to the rocks.

      Apparently the movement of the earth’s crust brings rocks to the surface. As a gardener I believe it.

    The steps going up the side of the hill from the parking lot to the restrooms and showers at Burying Hill Beach
