When you return from Flagstaff you arrive at the beach (pic 1) but you should be warned your walk any further can be tide dependent.
There's more than enough to keep you busy for the day although a visit to the museum won't detain you long, though Rosemarie was interested in the shark's jaws (pic 2) and they have a scale model of a famous ship plus a huge lobster.
The scene from the back of the beach is just like a postcard (pic 3) and there's any amount of interesting residences, some set behind charming picket fences.
