Nice marina, does smell bad in the summer, the water can be very dirty, special when it rains... Very nice to take pictures

We visit the waterfront on a semi regular basis. It's great to just meander along the water edge and get some air. We like stopping off for a coffee or sometimes a bite of lunch at Isaacs.

My kids rode their bicycles along the waterfront while I flew my drone. Beautiful area to walk, relax, and fly a drone. It was a bit cold, but we had a great time.
