Burying Hill is a rocky beach. The sand is rocky; so is the floor of the Sound, as you venture into the water. There’s even a cement wall, built atop large rocks.

Andrew Colabella, Chip Stephens, Bill Shaner, Lynn Untermeyer Miller, Lindsay Weiner and Ralph Balducci all nailed this one. Rock on!
So how about this week’s Photo Challenge? If you know where you’d see this, click “Comments” below.

It took a few weeks longer than usual.
But this morning, lifeguard chairs were back at Compo Beach.
Soon — in a scene very familiar to former Compo guard Kathie Motes Bennewitz, who watched with joy and gratitude — training took place.

Starting tomorrow (Wednesday, July 1), lifeguards will staff Compo and Burying Hill beaches from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
Everyone into the water!
