The towns that dot the Connecticut shoreline along the Long Island Sound were coming to life as photographer Lisa Sacco traveled through that region to capture the awakening of spring. Join her on this photographic tour as she wanders through the charming small town of Madison, explores the expansive town green of Guilford, and strolls along the beaches in Old Saybrook, where the Connecticut river feeds into the Sound.
