Midwinter: Lower Connecticut River between I95 and railway bridge


If you can correctly identify this harbor, you’ll be on your way to winning a fine Points East designer cap. To qualify, identify the harbor AND tell us something about the harbor, such as how you recognized it and some reasons you like to hang out there. We’ll pick a winner from all of the correct entries and print the answers in the next issue of Points East and also post them here.

It’s a prime spot from which to boat-watch

The answer is: lower Connecticut River, between I-95 and the railway bridge. This is the shoreline “between the bridges,” which is in Old Lyme and Old Saybrook, Conn. The picture may have been taken from the Back Porch Restaurant at the Between the Bridges Marina. The photo shows the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection headquarters, across the river. From this point, looking south past the railway bridge, your view captures the mouth of the river, Long Island Sound and, in the distance, Long Island, N.Y. This is a prime spot for boat-watching on a nice summer weekend.

It’s North of Old Lyme drawbridge

This is the Connecticut River, just north of the Old Lyme drawbridge.
