Finally A Beach Day

Connecticut still has some relatively untouched places. This is one of my favorites, Bluff Point in Groton (The link it to a typically drab State of Connecticut website. Here is another from the same website). It is usually nearly deserted. Thing is, you must walk or bike about a mile and a half or boat in. This discourages and most multi-offspring families, umbrellas, coolers, blaring music and other annoyances. There are no concession stands, showers or boardwalks. Just sand, rocks, vegetation and several hiking trails.

"Well, Mildred, we've finally got a good beach day."
"Aw, shut up George, and go find us some lunch."

Why does this area remeind me of a Greek Island? I've never even been to Greece.
