The views are lovely. See the museum. It is small but cute and interesting. We spent less than 30 minutes. We touched otter fur! So soft!

We wandered out on a cool Sunday morning and came upon surfing competitions. What a joy to see all levels of families, singles and certainly old timers like us!
