Photo Challenge #222

Last week’s Photo Challenge was a seahorse.

Okay, not a living one. This one’s a much larger sculpture.

For some reason, it’s located next to the Parker Mansion (former Mansion Clam House) outdoor dining area.

Diane Silfen, John D. McCarthy, Sue Iseman, Andrew Colabella, Christine Utter, Joelle Malec, Elizabeth Devoll, Peter Barlow, Susan Miller and Richard Santalesa all knew where to find it. (Click here for the photo.)

But no one has yet explained why it’s there. Or for how long. Or who created it. Or any other bit of back story.

If you know anything about this very cool seahorse, click “Comments” below.

Click “Comments” too if you know where in Westport you’d find this week’s Photo Challenge.

(Of course it’s the Rotary International symbol. But which particular local project does this honor? That’s the question!)

    The seahorse was put there by Jacko Saltus when it was The Mansion. Other than that I have no history of the piece

  3. Bus shelter Near stop & shop and home goods on Bulkley or bus shelter near canal street. Both constructed by Westport Rotary Club.

    • Well done, Rick (though as a Rotary Club member you have an “in.” This one is the bus shelter on Kings Highway North, near Canal Street. Thanks for your efforts!
