This was a nice area to kill some time. I really enjoyed eating at the outdoor marina area. There is also a high end restaurant upstairs if you prefer that instead of outside dining. It is right on the bay.

We started at the Bishop Mansion. We went up and down the streets behind it. There were some historical homes . Some all done up some getting work done. It was a pleasure look at the past.

Have done some walking as I'm staying in the Historic East End. Been through Sacred Heart Church, Bishop's Palace, the Moody Mansion and seeing many beautifully restored older homes.
