Rainy day pastime
New London — New London Parks and Recreation lifeguards Zora Labonte, Eddie Arteaga and Jake Gannotti were playing rummy Tuesday as they took shelter from the rain in the lifeguard office at Greens Harbor Beach.
The beach opened for weekday swimming last week and is staffed with lifeguards Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Part of the beach remains closed due to construction on a drainage project that runs from the adjacent park, across Pequot Avenue and through the beach.
The weather forecast is more beach-friendly the rest of the week.
