First Snow

Niantic, CT  2019

See?  I told you so.  We didn't get as much snow as some areas of Connecticut.  Being only a mile or so from Long Island Sound, our temperatures were fairly moderate,  resulting in more rain than snow.

Niantic, CT  2019

This is today's view from my backyard patio.  We're expecting some snow tonight, so tomorrow this should look much different.    I guess winter has finally arrived in SE Connecticut.

Long Island Sound

Rocky Neck State Park, Niantic, CT 2019

One from the archives.....  A number of things have kept me from getting out to photograph.  Now the weather is going to  be a factor as winter is approaching.  So this week, I'll be reviewing my photos looking for those that didn't make my first cut, in choosing photos to post here.

Lamp Post and Camera

Mystic, CT  2019

Cameras are everywhere these days.  I guess this one watches for anyone daring to loiter on the sidewalk crossing the Mystic River Bridge.

One can find ornamental anchors all over the Mystic area.  They seem to outlive their original ships.

Surf's Up!!

Niantic, CT  2019

A little chilly for surfing, with temps in the mid-50's.  Winds were gusting up to 50 mph.

Angry Sound

Niantic, CT  2019

There were high winds in the northeast this week due to a "bomb cyclone".  It made for some pretty big waves along our beach in Niantic.  I have rarely seen Long Island Sound this rough.

Sunscreen Station

Niantic, CT  2019

The city has provided these convenient stations to dispense sunscreen for those who walk the 1.2 mile long boardwalk along Niantic Bay.  It even tells you how long you should stay out in the sun.

Driftwood Sculpture

Niantic, CT 2019

For some reason, I don't think these pieces of driftwood just happened to be placed just like this solely due to the forces of wind and surf.
