Just a few weeks after opening, the new Saugatuck Island bridge is closed again.
The bridge is fine. It’s Mother Nature — or perhaps climate change — that’s the problem.
Today is lovely. The sun is out; the air is crisp.
But high tide was at noon. It came during a near full moon. Here’s the result:
Gene Borio – an alert “06880” reader and Saugatuck Shores neighbor who took these photos — notes: “There are free tide apps available. Saugatuck Island residents need to start downloading them.”
It’s beautiful here in Westport. Sunny, a tad nippy — a typical February 9.

Canal is not as well known as Westport’s other beaches — Compo, Old Mill and Burying Hill.
But the view from Saugatuck Shores — captured here today by nearby resident Gene Borio — proves that it is just as beautiful as anywhere else in town.

Gene Borio does. Here are 3 very cool views, from his perch on Saugatuck Shores.
On Sunday, “06880” heralded the arrival of the Blizzard of Even Before The Universe Was Created with a photo headlined: “Red Sky At Morning…”
48 hours later we are pleased to post this shot, by alert reader Gene Borio. He took it at dusk, by Canal Beach on Saugatuck Shores.
Looks like some nice weather ahead!
