Photo Challenge #373

The launching spot under the I-95 Saugatuck River bridge is one of those Westport places you know well, or have never heard of.

Accessible by little-known Elaine Road — slipped in on South Compo between the highway and the railroad — it’s a hidden-in-plain-sight sight. You can see it from Bridge Square, and driving over the Cribari Bridge. But unless you want to take your motorboat, sailboat, kayak or canoe out on the water, you have no idea how to get there.

Plenty of residents — and others from all over the area — know it well.

So do Andrew Colabella, John McCarthy, Martin Gitlin, Chip Stephens, Adam Starr, Seth Schachter, Patricia Auber, Dave Eason, Fred Rubin, Seth Braunstein, Jonathan McClure and Jalna Jaeger.

All quickly identified last week’s Photo Challenge as the underside of the bridge that towers above the site. Click here to see Patricia McMahon’s photo.
