Beach: Rocky

Jim ~ Westbrook, CT

Beach: The beach was nice but, there were pieces of concrete ranging in size from about the size of a concrete block to several feet long and wide. These blocks were more apparent at low tide but were a potential diaster waiting to happen. I do not recall seeing these last year.
