Burying Hill Beach may or may not have been a burial ground for the Native Americans who lived here long ago, or the early settlers who displaced them.
It may also be Westport’s least-known beach — or finest gem.
But Burying Hill definitely was the subject of last week’s photo challenge. Larry Untermeyer captured it in all its often overlooked glory. Click here for his compelling photo.
Lawrence Zlatkin, Fred Cantor, Ralph Balducci, Stephanie Ehrman, Michael Calise, Barbara Sherburne, Wendy Cusick, Will Luedke, Jonathan McClure, Linda Amos, Diane Bosch, Jalna Jaeger, Seth Goltzer, Mary Jennings and Mary Ann Batsell all know Burying Hill — and all correctly identified Larry’s image.

Nearly everyone in Westport is gone. It’s a holiday weekend, and the start of the schools’ winter break.
For the few folks left in town, yesterday’s snowfall was perfect. A few inches of heavy white stuff fell at night. There was little traffic, no major events to disrupt.
When we woke up this morning, the storm had moved on. The sun was bright, the snow already melting.
It was beautiful — and, hopefully, fleeting. By midweek, temperatures are expected to hit 65.
So how are things in Cabo, Antigua, or wherever else you all are today?
