Still, the forecast for Tuesday was spot on as the afternoon winds blew a steady 20 kts. with gusts to...who knows what.

Construction on I-95 bridge over the Housatonic River is moving along.

However, this didn't prevent Charlie W. and me from going out in the afternoon even though we knew our fishing options would be severely limited by the SW winds.

So we hid behind the breakwaters and condominiums and managed to put a few bluefish and schoolie stripers into the boat.

Great Black-Backed Gull didn't seem to mind the winds.
