Treasure hunting at Rocky Neck
Randy Hyde, of Waterford, stands knee deep in the water as he uses a metal detector to look for items at Rocky Neck State Park in East Lyme on Monday, December 3, 2018. "It's too nice of a day not to get in the water, there's been a few of us out here today," Hyde said of the unseasonably warm temperatures that hit almost 60 degrees. (Sarah Gordon/The Day)
