Rocky Neck State Park is located in Niantic, Connecticut on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean. The beach is aptly named since you will find plenty of stones, rocks and boulders that while impressive, can be dangerous for those who are not careful while walking over them. Some of the rocks are covered with slick slippery moss that can make things very treacherous. There are walking trails, picnic areas and marshlands where many species of water birds can be seen nesting, feeding and flying about. For the birdwatchers out there, bring binoculars or a camera, you will not be disappointed! With the shorter days and cooler temperatures brought on by the Fall season, the crowds of people and the scorching hot temperatures have abated. What better time to visit the beach to take some pictures! Below are a few from my short walk on the beach.
