Lovely seaside walk, with a museum and a cute shop. I was on the lookout for picture worthy stops on our road trip and this was definitely at the top of the list.

We were just passing by on a trip up the coast. It was a dreary day, so we didn't even get out of the car. It was still a pretty harbor. It's a smaller harbor, but looks like in the warmer months there'd be fun...More
