Residents enjoy 'hidden treasure' beach in Waterford year-round
Waterford — The sun was out Wednesday, and that brought residents — including furry ones — to Waterford Beach in the middle of February.
Kenny Hall of Waterford was watching his dog Rocko run into the surf to retrieve a stick and then shake off water, while taking a walk. Hall said they come to the beach every day.
He also said Rocko loves the water and he can't keep him out of it.
Karen Wasserman of Waterford also was taking a walk along the sand Wednesday. She said the beach is "a hidden treasure" and one of the prettiest in all of Connecticut because one can see nature all around it.
Temperatures were expected to stay in the low to mid-30s the next couple days before rising into the 40s over the weekend, with sunny and partly sunny skies in the forecast.
