Families fit in beach visit before snow arrives

East Lyme — Siblings Ozzie and Dino Schmelzer of Deep River were joined by friends and family members as they played in the surf Thursday at Rocky Neck State Park.

Their mother, Hannah Schmelzer, said they and Tessa Malcarne and son Winter Curran, 2, decided to go to the beach when they noticed snow and colder weather in the forecast.

"The kids are more daring than we are when it comes to getting in the water, though," she said, watching as they ran from the waves in snow boots and winter coats.
