There’s plenty to do, too, with a wide variety of golf courses in the area that are open for business twelve months of the year, as well as a plethera of gift shops, boutiques and a beautiful waterfront promenade. “Sunsets are a big favorite around here, too,” Ralph advised us; he explained how, when the tide is out, people can walk out a quarter of a mile to get the best views. The local train station has also been turned into a rail museum, and there are sailing lessons to be had for the more adventurous.
