Connecticut Yankee from United States
“Baker's is in reality Horseneck whose only reliable break is near rivermouth in Westport that distributes sediment after rains; the real prize is the far east end around the peninsula that takes blown out SW trades and transforms slop into groomed S lines providing J-Bay type 100 yd long barrels on pure sand and shell bottom, blue-green color like Caribbean!”
