“06880” readers really know their onions.
And their onion barges.
I was sure that last week’s Photo Challenge — an aerial view, though it wasn’t that apparent — would leave readers crying “foul.”
Instead — very quickly — 6 alert Westporters recognized it as the remains of the old onion barge, mired for decades in the mud on the east bank of the Saugatuck River, near the William F. Cribari Bridge by Bridge Street. (Click here to see.)
It’s visible only at certain low tides. But Seth Schachter, Scott Brodie, Bill Rizzuto (who, to be fair, owns a restaurant a few yards away), Pat Saviano, Beth Berkowitz and Martha Mogren (who grew up nearby, but has not lived here in years) all nailed it. Very, very impressive!
Now, as we metamorphize from the caterpillar that was 2020 to the butterfly we hope is 2021, here’s the final Photo Challenge of the year.
