Walked out of our house and 100 steps later we were on the beach. Walking with our dog, we came upon a seal in the water. I think I was more scared than my dog!

Beach was pleasant with access to a quaint sandwich shop. No area for parking et large area for setting up an umbrella. Life guard was on duty at lunch time.
