Kids go on ecological escapade at Rocky Neck State Park in East Lyme
East Lyme — As temperatures soared Wednesday, some visitors to Rocky Neck State Park were seeking more than just relief in the water.
With their nets at the ready, children were wading in Bride Brook in search of creatures. Among them, Michael Weaver, 6, of Southington, said they were finding small fish, eels and small crabs.
The high was near 90 Wednesday, and temperatures in the low to mid-80s are expected through Saturday.
