Comments:
After the dire predictions of searing heat across Connecticut, here along the shore this afternoon, after a roaster of a morning, it was simply lovely, blue skies and breezy. During hurricane season, this is the upside of shore living. Includes a quick peek at Menunketesuck Flats. Still no terns. Critter report: 4 squirrels, 1 bunny, 1 chipmunk.
