A great place to watch the world pass by. Relaxing and therapeutic. Lots of friendly, local characters to meet and talk to. Lots of things to explore and great to see the living history, boats and dramatic setting.

Had a beach front window to ourselves for breakfast then unobstructed views of the harbor for photos. When most shops opened at 10, we purchased items in five stores with high quality one of a kind gifts. Loved walking the quaint streets as well.
