Lots of children were having a blast - very excited to be at the beach.

I had a more difficult time suspending disbelief - Westerly Sewerage plant is just a few hundred yards away.

Westerly sewage

 Check out the huge storm water drain pipe a few feet from where this photo was shot. We call it storm water, but the storm and sewer systems are merged.

Power boats

I am disturbed by the power boats anchored so close to this public beach--motor boats churn up the sand and the bacteria.  YUCK!  I seem to remember that this is not a permitted location to anchor.  I grew up along the lake.  Any coast guard folks out there?? 

Lake Erie...and sewage...still a long way to go
