If you couldn’t make last night’s “06880” blog party, I understand.
We competed with the Senior Center lobster dinner, and the Chamber of Commerce after-hours social.
Plenty of readers are on vacation. Others live far away.
But the 120 or so folks who made it to Compo Beach last night had a great time. Politicians, candidates and commission members (even the P&Z — thanks for canceling your meeting!) mingled with artists, bankers, retirees, stay-at-home moms and dads, teachers, lawyers and local merchants (thanks, Julie, for repping Savannah Bee Company!).
Special thanks go to Westport’s Parks & Rec beach crew, who went waaaay out of their way to be helpful, warm and welcoming.
We ate. We drank. We chatted about everything except politics.
We watched the sun set. We realized how grateful we are to live in Westport — or to have some ties to it.
See you at next year’s bash!
