Last week’s Photo Challenge featured a Westport favorite: ospreys.
One held a fish under its talons. Both perched on a dock, a wooden duck between them. The scene could have been many places. Where was it exactly?
Off Harbor Road, in Saugatuck Shores. I cropped Mark LaClair’s image so only a few clues were visible: The tip of Stony Point on the left, the Longshore golf driving range on the right. (Click here to see.)
That was enough for Andrea Cross, Tom Risch, Tyler Kupper, Seth Van Beever and Marj Brous. Others hovered in the general vicinity, but were off by a road or direction or two.
This week’s Photo Challenge involves one of the many memorial plaques that we see — but never really look at — all around town.
If you know where this one (with its mysteriously whimsical homage) is located, click “Comments” below.
Spring is here. And here’s what Westporters saw this weekend:
It happens like clockwork.
It rains. The tide is high. Canal Road floods.
It’s not unusual. It’s life on Saugatuck Shores.
But just imagine if this were a full — not a new — moon.
Eight months ago during a strong storm, a boat lost its Saugatuck Shores mooring. Ever since, it’s been wedged between the sea wall and a dock.
Yesterday, it was finally removed.
Norwalk-based G&C Marine Services did the job — pro bono.
Shores residents are now G&C fans for life.
