There's a small, very slow road that runs beside Coastal Highway for awhile. Look to the east and you will see a lake that's home to geese and ducks and high-priced "cottages". It's lovely. This is not a spot for anyone who is in fast-paced mode. It's for bicycles, runners, people on a walk with children or dogs or just for the peace of it. Even drivers have to slow down to 25 mph and breathe in the calm. When dusk arrives, you see how the lake got its name. The gently rippled water begins to gleam like liquid silver. Most of the shore is privately owned, so it's not a place you can camp out for the day. But you may linger a bit, take pictures, sneak down to the water's edge and toss in some bread for the lake's inhabitants. It is truly lovely and a nice break from the noise and business of the local, highly popular beaches.
