Saugatuck Shores has been in the news recently.
A new bridge turned out nicely. New guardrails nearby did not.
For months, a boat has been beached just off Harbor Road.
And whenever there’s an astronomical high tide or just a bigger-than-usual weather event, the area floods.
Saugatuck Shores is one of Westport’s most coveted neighborhoods — with real estate prices to match.
That status has come recently. For decades it was a just funky, quirky beachside community.
And — as this 1963 aerial photo shows — there was plenty of room to build.
