Sun Comes Up On The Season

Beach stickers are required to park at Compo Beach.

Later this month, warmer weather will draw crowds to the shore.

In a few weeks, the summer season will be in full swing.

Right now though, Compo still belongs to a select few.

Talented “06880” photographer Patricia McMahon headed down there a few mornings ago. She captured an hour, and time of year, that most of us are not privileged to see.

Whether you live here now, or once did; if you’re miles from the beach, or a few yards away: Enjoy these shots. Cherish this beautiful Compo Beach spring.

Moody Farewell To A Mournful Year

Today’s sullen skies are an apt metaphor for this entire gray year.

But “06880” readers are a hardy bunch. We made the best of what we had, every day. We were thankful for little things — including the chance to live in a place with as much beauty and wonder as Westport.

The final day of 2021 was like so many others here. No matter what else goes on, we are drawn to the beach. It’s a place of wonder, no matter the weather.

Here are today’s scenes, captured by 2 “06880” readers.

Judging by Friday’s serene Compo Beach scene, you’d never know we had 7 inches of rain less than 48 hours earlier (Photo/June Rose Whittaker)
