Photo Challenge #287

Sure, it was easy. But for an early summer, return-to-the-beach-even-if-it’s-not-fully-open Photo Challenge, it was a good one.

Kathy Motes Bennewitz captured an image familiar to generations of kids: the foot wash by the 3 Compo showers, between the concession stand and lifeguard shack. (Click here to see.)

For decades, youngsters have been mesmerized by their ability to block the drain, and create tunnels in the sand on the other side of the boardwalk. It’s a true joy of summer.

And it doesn’t matter if there are no picnic tables, grills, concession stand or even lifeguards this summer. Little boys and girls will still play there, getting as wet and muddy as ever.

Matt Murray, Andrew Colabella, Chip Stephens, Seth Schachter, Rich Stein, Nancy Axthelm, Diane Silfen, Lynn Untermeyer Miller and Lois Himes all knew the spot. Most of them played there as kids too.

Here’s this week’s Photo Challenge. If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.
