Sealing The Deal

In the air and by the sea, Westport is becoming quite the nature center.

Earlier this week, an osprey captured our attention. Now it’s a seal.

Alert “06880” reader/Compo Beach resident Larry Hoy reports that yesterday he was walking his dog Dixie at the end of Roosevelt Road.

Suddenly she turned, walked to the seawall and started sniffing in the direction of the marina.

“She’s a natural hunter,” Larry says. “I knew she smelled something, but I didn’t think there would be by a deer or woodchuck over there.”

He looked closely, and saw a big brown lump on a dock.

Then it moved.

He was fascinated by the seal.

It’s still there today.
