Our “06880” Photo Challenges are meant to be fun: I post an image, you guess where it is.
I have to crop many submissions creatively. Last weekend’s, though, was a rarity. It was both challenging and artistic.
David Squires’ shot showed a gate with black waves, undulating against a background of green grass and blue sky. (Click here to see.)
It was visually arresting. And it was familiar to Wendy Brown, Jonathan McClure, Lynn Untermeyer Miller, Wendy Cusick and Stephanie Mastocciolo. All knew it can be seen on Beachside Avenue, opposite Greens Farms Academy. The look is modern, but the view is classic.
This week’s Photo Challenge is also a bit different. The view is of a Westport beach, obviously — but what’s its official name? Click “Comments” if you know.
PS: No Googling. This is tougher than it looks.
Burying Hill Beach?
Old Mill Beach at Hillspoint
Burying Hill Beach
Oh, wait… isn’t that Burying Hill Beach on the other side of the jetty in the background?
So is this Sherwood Beach?
I’d like to look up the name of the beach on Sherwood Island, if there is one, but I know that would be a cheat.
Well, while I won’t mention it because I cheated, I do think it’s “Sherwood Beach” (insert correct name >HERE<).
Interestingly enough, the map online incorrectly (as far as I know) named the beach in the background "Burial Hill Beach", not Burying Hill Beach.
East Beach @ Sherwood Island
East Beach…on Sherwood Island
Jonathan and Chris are closest. But there is an official name for East Beach — what is it? No cheating!
You got it, Chris! How did you know?!

…being there everyday riding bikes helps but all signage says ‘East Beach’…no physical mention of Alvord Beach
