Even in the rain, this is a beautiful beach. Got some great pictures. My daughter was even so kind to donate her glasses to a fish in need. 😂 Didn't help her much after that but, there sure is one happy fish out there!!

This is a great beach. A family place for walking, jogging, swimming, tanning, kayaking, surfing or just watching people. The kids love the play ground which is really nice. There is also a big parking lot which can fill up pretty fast.
