Pics Of The Day #1244

Nearly every day, it seems, someone emails me photos of clouds.

Most of them are interesting. But very few rise to the high, truly compelling bar this is the Pic of the Day.

Last night’s clouds, though, were legit amazing. And as proof that they were special: Several different readers submitted their shots. Here are a few:

Photo Challenge #288

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.

But the small beach draws a loyal crowd. They know that “Burying Hill rocks.”

They also knew that John Karrel’s photo — showing a bunch of stones, underneath a clever “Kindness Rocks” sign — was taken right there, off Beachside Avenue. (Click here to see.)

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.

Lifeguards Return To Beaches Tomorrow

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.

The only difference between now and years past was the face masks.

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!
