There's a big parking lot at the end and walking trails over the sand dunes to the beach beyond. Apparently the sign doesn't lie, because all of the fisherman on the jetty were on THIS side of the danger zone, a good sign that I should stay there also!!
Even on this beautiful sunny day, the waves were hitting the end of the jetty pretty hard.
Here you can view the bridge from another angle, play in a small tide pool, catch dinner or just watch the world go by.
Dan discovered a gold mine the day before, so I went to Old Town next to take advantage and bring home some liquid gold ... chowder that is, thick, rich and delicious clam chowder. Along the way there are some really great murals to check out. You might go early ... parking is at a premium in this area.
They also have canned albacore ... some of the best I've ever eaten, rivaling what I used to can myself. I'll be taking home a case or two!!
The walls are covered with her paintings and the music you hear playing in the background is hers. She's got personality plus ... and offered to play for us ... practicing her new song she said. What a talent!!! Although she says some people don't want her to play while they eat, we encouraged her by clapping loudly!! You definitely should stop in if you can ... the food was outstanding and Huiya Chen's outlook on life is infectious!! Ask her to play the piano for you!! You can read more about her story and hear her music at huiyachen.com. Check it out!!
