Yesterday was the first day of summer.
Today is the last day of school.
Soon, we’ll see scenes like this at Compo Beach.
Well, sort of.
Westport artist Stevan Dohanos used our beach as the inspiration for this painting.
I’m not sure if the Good Humor man was ever allowed to hang out where he did.
But the raft is totally legit.
Back in the 1950s and early ’60s, several of them were anchored off shore.
Kids did actually what the models are doing in Dohanos’ work. And a lot more.
Which is probably why there are no more rafts in the waters off Compo Beach today.
