My last post was a bird's eye view of one condo complex. Am now reporting on waterfront properties (Long Island Sound--not tidal, mudflats, river or ponds). Who wouldn't want to be on the water with the fabulous glimmering sunshine days we've had?

350 Riverside Ave. (Ole's Boatyard) @$1,550,000
32 Twin Lakes @ $8,400,000
5 Bridle Path @$8,950,000
Actually, I realize that Ole's, 350 Riverside, does NOT have open LI Sound views. I guess I had to include it because it is so entrancing, plus, walking distance to everything in Old Greenwich. It floods regularly, I hear, since it's at the confluence of the river/pond outflow, and the tidal inflow. The building still stands, and wouldn't there be a way to build above sea level??? We're hearty, and the row boat or kayak would get us in and out in deep water. Just had to keep it on the list!
Book recommendation: Cocktail Hour under the Tree of Forgetfulness by Alexandra Fuller. Redolent with the sounds, light, and heat of Africa, the storyis interwoven with how place and people affect a Rhodesian family's life and especially Nicola, the author's mother.
