“This is a beautiful place for a short walk by the water, a picnic area or to sit and wait for the whales. Bring a guitar, a game or just a friend and enjoy the view from tables or just sit on the rocks. Bring an extra blanket just Incase it’s windy and it’s a beautiful place to watch the sun set too.”
