Photo Challenge #378

Last week’s Photo Challenge showed a colorful mosaic. As usual, “06880” readers were sure of its location.

Half were positive that Jo Sherman Shields’ tantalizing image was part of the unique design surrounding one of the Old Mill private parking garages, on Sherwood Mill Pond.

The other half were just as sure it was across Compo Cove from Old Mill, at Sherwood Island.

The latter group was right. The rocks, shells and whatnot form a “tree mosaic” inside the main pavilion at our state park. (Click here to see.)

Diane Bosch, Erica Caldwell, Lynn Untermeyer Miller, Angi Haen and Linda Green all identified the Sherwood Island site correctly.

But the Old Mill parking garage was a good guess. Both are part of Westport’s semi-hidden art treasures. You just have to know where to look.

This week’s Photo Challenge might be a bit of wishful thinking. Can we really control geese?

  1. Next to the boat ramp at the Dimes Marina adjacent to Campo Beach Road

  2. This is on the gate between the Ned Dimes Marina and the lawn adjacent to Compo Beach Road.

  3. The gate near Ned dimes marina where the boat ramp is

  4. Gate separating Ned Dimes Marina boat ramp from path along sea wall on the sea wall side of the gate.

  5. The gate to the marina area at Compo Beach

  6. Correct – near Ned Dimes Marina. Be careful where you step — the geese are not great neighbors.

  7. Just past Ned dimes Marina.

  8. It’s the gate between the Ned Dimes Marina and the grassy area beyond !

  9. All the above comments are correct. To add a bit of context, the sign was affixed by the owner of the large (yellow’ish house directly across the marina. The intention was to try to reduce the volume of geese poop.

  10. Gate between grass that borders the boat basin and the boat basin.

    Near the ramp used to put boats in the water and the docks.

  11. I always laugh when I see this. Obviously geese can fly!

    Easy peasy. The gate from the parking lot at the marina to the grassy area and parallel trail leading to Compo Beach Road. I pass by it all summer on the way to my boat at the marina! And, the geese are terrible.
