My family and I enjoyed our afternoon here. Nancy was very nice and had some great interaction with the kids. We spent about an hour and a half, most building and taking things apart. There was also a small craft.

Yes! We are a short walk away from the ferry on the Port Jeff side of the Sound. Head East for about 5 minutes, we are just East of Danfords hotel.
