The other day I went to Lawson's quarry. There were a bunch of teenagers cranking out some cannon balls off the cliff by the road. The flat rocks had people sunning themselves like seals on the rocks outside the harbor. Some dorky kid with a...More

Its about a mile from the landing dock from the ferry. It is wonderful.....steps leading down and about a 75 yard swim across. Water warm for those of us from the south.

Sometimes it's a bit chilly, but refreshing and always beautiful! If you have the nerve, jump off a little cliff to add some excitement to your swim. :-)

It is about 20feet in the middle. The sides vary but are for the most part under 10 feet. The cliffs where people jump off on the road side is deeper. The backside is a lot shallower and more ideal for young children
