Residents hit the beach in Westport during last week of December

It?s the last week of December, but that didn?t keep residents from hitting the beach in Westport Friday to enjoy the unseasonably mild weather.

With sunshine, mild temperatures and clear skies in the forecast, dozens were out and about at Compo Beach. Jeanne Lesch, of Westport, brought her kids out ice skating but hopes temperatures remain warm. And Peter Knight and his family, visiting from England, were not disappointed with the almost balmy weather they found in Connecticut.

With sunshine in the forecast for the next couple of days, residents have plenty of opportunity to get outside and forget that it's actually winter.
