Life Saver

If you need a 30 minute break from the beach - this is a cool place to go poke around. I love the old Laughing Sal. She's from a by-gone era - but still a funny gal.

A must visit museum.

If you haven't been to this museum lately, it's certainly worth another look. We haven't been to the museum in over 15 years. it was well worth another visit.

Rescue History

Beautifully preserved life saving station. A must see to learn about the people who staffed the forerunner of the Coast Guard, using hand tools and man power to save people from wrecks and drowning.
