Last week on a rainy, stormy day we went down to the Seawall in Lordship, CT for lunch.
It was windy & raining, and I was able to get some views of Long Island Sound in a storm.
The visibility was very low & the waves were surging toward the shore, & I did get wet
taking them. It rained all that day, but the next morning the sun was out & I took a ride to the Seawall again. Just 24 hours later those storm tossed waves, had returned to the calm &
serene Sound that those who live nearby enjoy.
The shoreline in Lordship, as you can see is beachlike, at least at low tide. The long view of the shore shows a lighthouse about a mile away,which sits at the mouth of the Housatonic River as it
enters Long Island Sound.
The Seawall Lookout is a popular place to walk,& look out towards Port Jefferson, Long Island,
New York. The 2 photos of the Sound show the outline of Long Island, NY at the horizon
line. NY is about 20 miles across the sound, & there is a ferry that travels from Bridgeport to
New York, every day. If you enlarge the second sound photo, I think you will see two smokestacks at Port Jefferson, a visual point of reference for anyone who lives here. And you may be able to see a seagull in the rain as well as the sun beach scenes.
