Nice waterfront to look out and listen to the water. Got here later when shops were closed so can't provide input there. Beautiful hot weather to enjoy the sights.

Small restaurants, walking paths, benches and views. Some interesting displays of historic boats and large wood carvings. Candy store is great!
