Taking a stroll with my family along the nature marine walkway. Stopping over to look for whales and just enjoying the fresh sea air and friendly people. The children spotted 2 whales, that was awesome! What I love most is that it is safe for children and the town is peaceful.

The beach was amazing. Sandy beaches for kilometres. Excellent for walks, especially if low tide and not windy. Thousands of shells washed up onto the sea shore.
