We stayed at a bnb steps away from the beach and pier. It was Feb but the weather was perfect and clear. Restaurants and the marina were in walking distance. Perfect long weekend. more »
Walking down this pier while the cold breezes of the ocean hit you, the sun's glistening orange rays touch your face and give subtle warmth as it sets ever so slowly. The smell of the food being sold at the pier that engulfs your nose with joy and excitement, the sounds of life and laughter amongst the crowd. This pier is really special, and it is relaxing. You should take a stroll down if you haven't, it shows true beauty at its finest.
Seeing the vast numbers of people and families going night fishing off of the pier is inspiring. Having an ice cream shake at Ruby's capped off a wonderful evening. The crashing of the ocean waves against the shore has its own unique way of comfort to the soul.
