Photo Challenge #142

Who knew we had so many ponds in Westport?

Nash’s. The Longshore golf course. Haskins Preserve. Gray’s Creek.

Those were some of the wrong guesses for last week’s photo challenge.

The correct answer — nailed by only Lynn U. Miller and Sally Mott — was: Bulkley Pond.

In fact, it was just before the waterfall, viewed from the Post Road on the bridge that divides Westport and Southport. Click here to see that beautiful sight.

Meanwhile, where in Westport — not Southport, not England, not anywhere else — would you see this shot? If you know, click “Comments” below.

Photo Challenge #107

Last week’s photo challenge was like Goldilocks.

It was not too easy. Not too hard. It was just right.

There was a great balance between right answers, and wrong.

The wrong guesses went in every direction. Seth Schachter’s waterfall photo showed not Lees Pond. Not Nash’s Pond. Not Devil’s Den.

It was Bulkley Pond. That’s by Sasco Mill, on the Westport/Southport border. It’s right behind Shake Shack. And — sssshhh!  — there’s a cute little parking area, for your enjoyment.

Andrew Colabella, Billy Scalzi, Joyce Losen and Katie Augustyn knew exactly where that hidden-in-plain-sight site was. Click here for the photo, and all the comments.

This week’s photo challenge is a lot uglier. But — like the 3 Bears — it takes all kinds to make up Westport.
