Everyone loves Compo Beach.
Swimming, sunning, grilling, boating, kayaking, strolling, volleyball, the playground — what’s not to like?
Those nasty, snarling, pooping-everywhere creatures are the bane of our beach existence.
A while ago, a nearby resident posted a sign on the gate between Ned Dimes Marina and the adjacent grassy area.
“Goose Control. Please close!” it said.
The idea was to keep geese confined to one area (which part is unclear).
It doesn’t work. Some people fail to close the gate. Plus, geese fly.
That sign was last week’s Photo Challenge. Matt Murray, Dan Vener, Rich Stein, Rod Rodriguez, Ralph Balducci, Judith Reid, Yvonne Ferris, David Feig, Pete Powell, Pat Saviano and Lawrence Joel Zlatkin all knew exactly where to find it. (And the accompanying goose turds.)

Now it’s on to today’s Photo Challenge. If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.
