We picked up all of the Islander Excursion busses right here. Lots of flowers, benches to use while we were waiting. Got to meet other travelers and their pets.

Great town for walking around. The fog rolled into the town in the early evening What a nice surprise. Made me wish we were there 100 years ago.

Great place to people watch while waiting for the Island Explorer. Also great shops to poke around it. Lots to see, and lots of benches to sit on if you just want to relax.
