Photo Challenge #353

There are few things more iconic in Westport than the Black Duck.

So when last week’s Photo Challenge showed hand-painted directional signs to 2 islands (Cockenoe and Long), and equally watery Key West, many “06880” knew where they can be found: the right side of our favorite dive bar. (Hey, that’s not me: Back in 2009, the Duck was a star attraction on the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives“).

Elaine Marino, Derek Fuchs, Michael Calise, Robert Mitchell, Werner Liepolt, Tony Sousa, Andrew Colabella, Bobbie Herman, Lynn Untermeyer Miller, Juliana Sloane Fulbright and Seth Braunstein are all (presumably) regulars, who nailed Seth Schachter’s photo as easily as they navigate the old barge’s sloping floor. (Click here for the image.)

This week’s Photo Challenge is also water-related. If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.

  1. The waterway between mill pond and burying hill beach (LI Soubd)

  2. I was going to say the canal along the south side of Sherwood Island but Alan is probably right…

  3. I cannot reveal this because The Hermits live there and only use a P.O. Box for the ultimate privacy. You can occasionally see their chariot parked at Trader Joe’s after hours and at the Y for a steam, shower, and sauna during the half-hour grace period. They are regularly at the library where they will not be noticed in the children’s dept., except for their beards.

  4. Sylvia Robinson Corrigan

    If you are looking toward Gorham Island, standing on the sidewalk next to the Saugatuck River at Parker Harding Plaza, there is this small waterway that is heading under a bridge which is part of the roadway to Gorham Island and the parking lot for the big business building.

  5. And the correct answer is … Sylvia’s. This is right in the middle of downtown, believe it or not.

  6. What you are looking at a rip rap and a stone wall I built for Philip Punzelt 30 years Bach . Robert Giunta owner of John Giunta Const. Westport

  7. It’s near the little path near the parking lot near GG&Joe in town

  8. There are two places this could be I built both one Parker Harding park lot the office building that one spot second Riverside Ave rowing club parking lot and private home both built30 years ago by John Giunta Co .

  9. Sylvia IS right! I went there to calm down and relax after participating in the Women’s March on the bridge.
