Nice weather, nice stroll through town. Seeing other dogs, and such. It's good past time. On street parking is fairly decent too, and should be able to find a spot somewhere.

A variety of shops, food and waterfront strolling in this lovely little town. Parking can be tough in summer so plan to walk. Many bnbs and small hotels in town too.

We walked along Butler street Saturday night and several places had live music but we were not looking for it so we did not go into any of those places.

Shops appear to open around 9a and some stay open late (10p). It depends on the shop.
