Great view of the bay and the ocean. Windy and frisky in April so if you want to stroll along the bay then bring a jacket and scarf.

Walk by the ocean, listen to the waves lapping the shore, enjoy the sunsets, listen for the echos of the ancient peoples, see the planetarium from a distance across the inlet.
