A fun quick stop with the kids. Surfing and Maritime history of the area. The building is worth a walk though alone and the view.

We always try to hit a little history on every trip we take and this was no exception. Great little tour with lots to see and made us much more appreciative of the coast guard and fishermen who call this town home.
