Two Views

Long Island Sound from Rocky Neck State Park

One of the trails at Rocky Neck State Park afforded some nice views of the bay and Long Island Sound. 


  1. What a beautiful place for a walk in the park. Most scenic.

    1. You know how much love I pictures of water, seascapes, rocks, etc. This state park has it all. There are still areas I have yet to explore here. Thanks for looking.

    2. Ed, I check out your photo posts on a daily basis because they are interesting and sometimes quite creative. I don't want to clutter up your blog with my comments all the time. Keep exploring that State Park. Of the two photos above, I like the top one because the sky has more definition, and then I can imagine what it's like to live in one of those houses across the bay.

      I grew up near Lake Michigan, really an inland sea. Never wanted to live close to the water because it was always damp and cool unless there was a strong west wind. But a half mile away was just fine.

    3. I know Lake Michigan well, having lived in Kalamazoo, MI for 24 years. That strong west wind would bring us quite a bit of snow in the winter. I've been enjoying your posts as well, and don't miss a day.

    4. Hi Ed, since I grew up in Illinois just north of Chicago it was the east wind that brought our big rain and snow storms. The west wind in summer blew the surface water out into the lake bring up the cold water from deep in the lake. That's when just stepping into the water would numb our feet, and swimming was very brief, if it happened at all.
