Playing Hooky At The Beach .... In March…..In CT!

 

In CT we are blessed with being on Long Island Sound, which is a haven for beaches, swimming, boating, water sports, and fishing. Usually, we can’t enjoy all of the above until the weather is a lot warmer and the water temperature is NOT in the 40s, like it is now.

 

However, today, and the next few days, we are enjoying some unusually warm weather in the 60s.  I had some business down by the water today and decided to play a little hooky and steal away to the beach... specifically Jennings Beach and Penfield Beach in Fairfield CT.  I was not surprised to see quite a few others enjoying the weather, walking, sunbathing, and having picnic lunches. 


Oh, I wish it could just get progressively warmer from this point on so we can actually have a spring and then a nice long summer. I am a definite, absolute warm weather gal.

 

So I snapped a few photos here and there from Black Rock in Bridgeport to the Fairfield Beach Road area, and this is what I captured.

I wanted to just linger around the Fairfield beach area, but I had to move on. I will return …. You can bet your sand dollars on that!

 

Hope you had a great day and an even better one tomorrow!

Julia -- I definitely will.  I could go for a walk on the beach every day.  It sure was lovely there yesterday.

George -- Good idea. I did think of her when I was down there in Black Rock!

Myrl -- The southern border of CT is on Long Island sound.  We have many, many beaches and even state parks from east to west.  From Fairfield, Long Island, NY is about 20 miles by boat.  The 'sound' is a mecca for boating, fishing and water sports. There's a lot of activity out there in the warmer months!
