Today Is Party Day!

It’s all good for tonight’s 5th annual “06880” Compo Beach “blog party.”

We’re set for 6 p.m. at South Beach — the alcohol-is-fine end, furthest from the cannons.

Bring your own food and beverages. If you’d like to bring something extra to share, feel free!

We’ll provide the “06880” community — a chance to meet commenters and lurkers. Each year there are oldtimers, newcomers, politicians and normal human beings. It’s a chance to talk, laugh and trade stories about this wild, wacky and only slightly dysfunctional town we share and love.

See you tonight!

PS: Park carefully. You don’t want to end up on “06880,” do you?

We’ll be just to the left of this jetty (near the boat and kayak launch). Without the car, though. (Photo/Linda Gramatky Smith)

    Can you get into the beach party even if you don’t live in Westport? I live on the Norwalk Westport town line off north Dylan’s on Orchard Hill Road.

    I love your blog! Especially the photography!

    • Thanks, Terri! My permit allows 20 out-of-towners to come to the party. Tell the gate you’re with “06880.” First come, first served!
