Canal Beach

Canal Beach, Westport

Canal Beach, one of Westport’s pocket parks, is over in the Saugatuck Shores neighborhood, which has a very beach-town feel to it. You can’t launch any kind of boat from this small beach, but what views of Cockenoe Island and the Norwalk Islands! A parking area across the street can accommodate a ┬ácar or two. Open sunrise to sunset.

The flag here in on private property. I liked the way the camera picked up the sun’s rays. I’ve heard it said that the best camera is the one you have with you, and I took this picture with an iPhone.
