Jacob’s Beach is a classic of the Connecticut shoreline, as far as I’m concerned.
I have been coming since much younger, when I used to sit out for hours in the summer reading a book and occasionally cool off in the water.
Mellow and chill in a good way, except at the height of the summer camp activities, and that just adds the warm glow of (why are kids so loud) memories.
Lately I have been using my aunts beach pass more for photography.
This is an excellent spot for sunrise and sunset photos, as well as nature photography.
The sight lines extend to Leetes Island the town marina.
The colorful boat racks, washed ashore beachwood and tall, undulating sea grass are all strong subjects for a photo.
The light coming off the Sound adds the Je Ne Sais Quoi.
