It's a treck from the parking lot to the beach.
Typical Connecticut beach sign. I've seen all of the following at one time or another: "No dogs, no horses, no glass bottles, no frisbees, no ball-playing, no coolers, no flotation devices, no alcohol, no swimming, and absolutely no nudity. The piping plovers are nesting. So we couldn't use the beach. Tell me that screaming little children don't frighten the piping plovers more than a well behaved dog.
Looks like a morning glory, but it was 2 in the afternoon.
Not typical on a New England beach
Hiked further to a nice little cove

The area was once private property - but the exclusive homes were wiped out in a hurricane back in the 1940's or 50's. Stone walls are everywhere in New England with stone walls bordering the fields. Connecticut was once practically clear cut of forest for ship building and homes and for farm land. Now we have less than 200 small farms left.
