Tropical Storm Irene pounded Fairfield County’s coastline Sunday, leaving in it a wake of flooding, historic power outages and widespread damage.
Irene exposed us New Englanders to things we are not accustomed to seeing–like boats hanging out on top of rock walls.
We captured these surreal images of a boat, ironically named the “Silver Hammer,” that was taken from its marina by the rising tidal surge and smashed on top of a rock wall on Harbor Road.
The boat is currently sitting atop the wall and has become a tourist attraction, says resident Mike Brown. “It became a novelty, but I’m ready to see it get out of here.”
It’s not every day you see these things in Westport, Connecticut, let alone anywhere in New England. But then again, nor do you see Hurricanes.
