There was a shaded path leading to the inlet. I'd never been here before and it looks like a great place to walk the dog, bike, run, or sit on a bench and read. Here's a photo from the ground, and one from the top of the lighthouse.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot! We toured the lighthouse, too. they call it "The Victorian Lighthouse" as it's built of wood more like a house than a traditional lighthouse. Very interesting!
