Friends share a totally tubular tradition in East Lyme
East Lyme — Friends Ella Rose Wagner, Eleni Xifaras, Melissa Solomindes, Maddie Baldwin and Brooke Cody, all 12 and of Farmington, had a totally tubular Thursday at Rocky Neck State Park in East Lyme.
The girls had the day off from school for the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur, said one of their mothers, Jennifer Wagner, who accompanied them. "It's a family tradition to go to the beach on this day," she said.
Though, she added, "this year there's a few less family members and a few more friends."
