Seen at first from afar from Interstate 95, I was anticipating my return to Westport to see the holiday lights on the Saugatuck River Bridge.
I didn’t know before this visit that this is the oldest surviving movable bridge in Connecticut having been built in 1884.
I waited awhile for all the cars to go through (in both directions) to get this shot! Yay!
There are several food options beside the bridge. I chose the Lobster Shack having a lobster salad. There are several outside tents technically for the sister Rizzuto restaurant to enjoy. TIP: I purchased a portable outdoor heater which has been coming in quite handy! Nice and toasty!
I was also on the search of a menorah in a holiday stroll as tonight was the first night. I found one in Westport! Balancing the cell phone on top of an electrical box I got the shot to prove it! Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate!
I continued up the road about a mile and a half to Main Street to find holiday shopping at both local and chain stores and a lovely walk by the river. Plenty more outdoor tented restaurant options here as well.
The riverfront reflected beautifully last night. But you’ll only see it if you pivot towards it and pause to take it all in. I would have missed this in prior years for sure!
Boy this is fun and certainly can enhance an otherwise long workday from home! Where shall we encourage each other to go next?
