Breathtaking Beach Beauty

Nearly half a year into the pandemic, it’s easy to dwell on what we miss.

The Memorial Day parade and July 4th fireworks. Large backyard barbecues. A normal school year. Life as we knew it.

But let’s not forget all that we have. Here in Westport, we are truly, bountifully blessed. We live in a loving, caring community. We have a broad array of resources to help us through.

And we have our beaches.

Staples High School senior Brandon Malin sent his drone flying over our shores. No matter how worried or down you feel, his astonishing photos will raise your spirits, and lift you high.

We don’t have a coronavirus vaccine yet. Until we do, these images are enough. (Click on or hover over to enlarge.)
