Dont forget your Camera and your walking shoes. The weather was great even in January we were able to get in the water. the new rock scupltures on the seawall were great.

“Seawall cleans up good”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Great job with clean up post Ike.
One can get your exercise in by renting a cycle and peddle up and down the wall,
The feral cats keep the rodent population down.

“It's a seawall!”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Unless you know the when and why of the thing it will be overlooked by most. Parking along here for beach access is a bit crowded. Read up on it and appreciate it's amazing engineering for keeping the island anchored and "afloat".
