Hannah Johnston of Old Lyme and Aidan Gilson of Old Saybrook unwrap sandwiches as they have a picnic at Harkness Memorial State Park in Waterford on Monday, Jan. 24, 2022. The couple had plans to go to the park, one of her favorite places, with a late lunch after school to celebrate her birthday.
"It´s hard to have a winter birthday and find things to do," said Johnston. "Sometimes you have to bring blankets to the beach."
