Betsy P. Kahn’s early morning Compo Beach stroll was marred by this sight:

Westport celebrated the arrival of July — and Independence Day — with perfect weather, and one of the largest fireworks crowds ever, last night.
It was a wonderful, friendly, community vibe. There was food and fun, glow sticks and sparklers, and wall-to-wall people.
Westport may have been the 1st community in America to celebrate July 4th this year. But the date doesn’t matter. The great feelings — about our town and our country — do.
Thanks, Westport PAL, Melissa & Doug, our police and fire and EMTs and Parks & Rec crew, and everyone else who made last night special!

It was quite a day there for photographers. This morning, Betsy P. Kahn saw a gorgeous sunrise:
Betsy P. Kahn took this photo yesterday. But she could have snapped it any day, any season, any year.
The Compo Beach jetties are timeless. They’re a place for anyone — of any age — to walk (carefully!).
And to stop, sit, and gaze in awe at the wonders all around.
