Long Beach, Stratford, Connecticut

We deal with the timeless tension of many married couples: fishing. My wife fishes; I don’t. (I find it boring, but I will stalk butterflies for an hour.) But she mentioned the idea of going to Long Beach in Stratford, located on the Long Island Sound, after an early dinner, so I grabbed my camera and explored while she pierced fish lips.

I had never seen monarch butterflies at the beach before, and these guys looked like they wanted to pose for pictures. It was a nice surprise. And what trip to the beach is complete without a gull picture? Rounding out the set is the least tern, a common little bird that was busy looking for dinner.

Take your adventures where you can find them.
