Nice park on the water. Visited low tide so we could climb on the rocks. Could not enter the lighthouse which would’ve been nice

Quite a fresh breeze was blowing the morning we went to this park with Dougal the wee Boston Terrier but thankfully it was a mild wind. It was Dougal's first visit here and he enjoyed himself running about the shore and chasing the birds. The...More
