Just walked around checking out the views and the beautiful homes. It was a stop on the bus so we took advantage. Enjoyed the architecture and the water views.

A nearby space from the bustle of the Downtown. Relax & watch the ships, birds or people OR take a relaxing stroll around the park or beach. Another great view the mountains behind the city on the North Shore
