The view is beautiful in either direction.
And there are plenty of opportunities for people-watching.
One enterprising (or hungry) fellow had set up his art for sale. Man oh man, if I'd have had the money or the wall space at home (to say nothing of a large enough suitcase or baggage allowance) I'd have snapped up a couple of his canvasses (not shown here).
Instead, after hustling back to the car following an all too short speed walk on the sea wall, I got to pay out $36.75 for the parking ticket we found stuck on the windshield.
Kind of turned the fine sights into fined sites, but it was almost worth it.
