Easy walk through fields and the ocean edge. Nice place to take pictures. You will see a variety of different bird species. Before or after your walk stop by the Bayside restaurant for a lunch with a view.

Allen's Pond Wildlife Sanctuary is an Audubon Society venue near the Westport shoreline. It's largely an open field with rocky crags and beach and it's a beautiful sight and great place to take a relatively short walk on a couple of loops. Fun.
