Rocky Shore

McCook Point Park, Niantic, CT

Although there are some sandy beaches along the Connecticut coastline most of the shoreline is rocky. Often times one can see exposed bedrock, eroded by the glaciers which covered the state over 14,000 years ago.  Since the shoreline here is protected to the south by Long Island, the action of the waves has done little to erode the bedrock.  In other places one can see the what the glaciers left behind, as shown above.
