Photo Challenge #347

The Compo Beach bathhouses are old and grotty.

But … they serve a purposes: storage for chairs, umbrellas and other summer gear.

They’re great for kids to race around in, and play hide-and-seek — as they have for generations.

And the locks that each renter puts on his or her locker are very, very colorful.

Kevin Carroll’s lock collage was last week’s Photo Challenge. It was too easy, complained many of the readers who quickly identified the location: Joyce Barnhart, Dave Lowrie, Elaine Marino, Gloria Smithson, Rich Stein, Seth Braunstein, John Richers, Andrew Colabella, Jo Ann Flaum, Lynn Untermeyer Miller, Arlene Blackman Yolles, Nancy Axthelm and Lawrence Joel Zlatkin.

Sure, it was. But you probably got the answer as you relaxed on the sand, in your beach chair, just after toting it a few yards from your locker.

That’s an “06880” summer Sunday for you.

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