I went jogging around the lake and met very few people, so peaceful and perfect for exercise or just a lovely walk.

Hint: Go at high tide, and join the kids in leaping off the boardwalk -- or bring a net, a string, and some bits of hot dogs and capture green crabs (not good to eat but super fun to catch!).
This long boardwalk takes you over marshes and tide streams, finishing at a beautiful beach.
