As I drove over the causeway of Moodus reservoir I saw a car parked by the beach with someone just sitting there, looking out at the water…. must be their ocean, I thought. Countless times on the way home from an event, work, party or whatever… night or day, I would stop into McCook’s beach. Someimes I would pull in to a spot., leave the car running… and stare out… other times, I would shut the car off in order to hear the light crashing waves of the sound… very relaxing. Me, the ever busy person back then, when it felt long enough and better head home, only 5 minutes had passed… perhaps all I needed.
