Winter at Goldsmith's Inlet

Earlier this January we hopped in the car on a very cold but sunny day to see if hurricane Sandy had done any damage to Goldsmith's Inlet Park and to the inlet itself.  Though there was considerable damage in many places on the north shore of the Long Island Sound this nearly pristine spot was unscathed, the timeless tide gently flowing to the sea.   Late Spring finds fly fishermen casting on the outgoing tide for striped bass and blue fish.  During the summer months the park is busy.  Many families with young children come to picnic and splash about in the safe, shallow waters
