Photo Challenge #156

Every Westporter knows the Post Road. South Compo. North Avenue.

But not every Westporter knows Greens Farms Road — especially the section near Southport.

That’s a shame. You miss out on beautiful homes. Our “other” railroad station.

And last week’s photo challenge.

Peggy Lehn’s image showed a tree stump, painted to look like a happy face. It’s familiar to anyone taking a right out of the station. Bob Grant, India V. Penney, Jimmy Stablein, Barbara Wanamaker, Seth Schachter and Andrew Colabella all recognized it instantly.

It’s been there for maybe a year — after a tree was cut, or fell down.

Let’s hope it stays forever. (Click here for the photo — or go see it yourself.)

  1. Is that the flag on the side of Little Barn?

  2. Side of the Little Barn Restaurant?

  3. I guess I spend way to much time in Saugatuck. I need to get out more. No idea.

  4. VERY good, Tom and Fred. It is the flag on the side of Little Barn. A nice addition to what used used to be Swanky Frank’s, Woody’s and — back in Fred’s day — Dairy Queen.

    • Yes, DQ was a favorite back then (along with Big Top). I can’t remember who among our friends worked there though.

  5. I’d prefer DQ to be back there. 😦

  6. Jonathan McClure

    The Little Barn, but it’s been guessed already

  7. THE LITTLE BARN IS ONE OF WESTPORT’S BEST FOR A PUB-LIKE LUNCH OR DINNER. NO RESERVATIONS SO GET THERE EARLY . . .
