Fences make good neighbors.
They also make good subjects for our Photo Challenge.
Last week’s image showed a typical — in other words, fairly expensive, handsome, and not at all garden-variety — Westport fence.
It could have been many places. Most readers thought it was somewhere on the water. But not Compo Cove. Not Beachside Avenue.
As Matt Murray, Andrew Colabella, Gloria Smithson, Joelle Malec, Clark Thiemann, Claire Elliot and Lynn Wilson knew, the image by Molly Alger showed the fence near 250 Hillspoint Road. It offers access to a small private beach between Old Mill and Compo. (Click here to see.)
Sure, it interrupts the view of walkers, joggers and bicyclists between Schlaet’s Point and Joey’s by the Shore.
But it’s a lot better looking than the big new house whose construction has been stalled for a couple of years now, just a few yards away.
Check out this week’s Photo Challenge below. Don’t click “Comments” to tell us what it is — that’s pretty obvious.
We want to know where in Westport you’d see it.
That’s right: Cobb’s Mill — at least, the sign — is not in Weston anymore.
