Sand, surf, socializing (Oh deer!) in Fairfield

It seemed like everyone wanted to get out to the beach over the weekend, including a young male deer that made an unexpected visit to South Pine Creek Beach.

While the first wave of beachgoers found their way out into the sun Saturday afternoon for some safe-distanced sand, surf and socializing, this sizable critter came out of the groves in a startled exercise in juxtaposition.
