Hang out for a while at the town docks...with the seagulls. It's very interesting there. You can watch the folks going to the fish store, coming back from a day on their cabin cruiser, quahaugers coming in from their work on the bay, lobstermen readying their boats and traps for the following day...young guys coming in from their day of kayaking.....

Here is a couple with the right idea. They visited the Smith's Castle and then decided to enjoy the grounds overlooking the water. It was a sensational sunny day. Just perfect.
