Finally we found a parking lot for the beach, there was a booth at the entrance so probably a fee but we wanted to see the beaches so we pulled in to find out what the rules were. Before we could ask we spotted the lifeguard which means no dogs on the beach (we looked that up previously) so we asked where we could go to take James and the guy told us that if we went to the area past the parking lot we could have James on the beachâ€¦ oh and parking would be $10 for the day.
We weren’t planning on staying for the day but we decided to pay the $10 so we could hit the beach for a little while. The water was really clear but chilly, and because we weren’t planning on swimming we didn’t really get in. There are rounded stones all over the beach and what looked like an old pier that ended at the dune line that was a nice bench for a while. We walked a bit and skipped some stones but the beach wasn’t really a great place for a hang out so after a half hour or so we jumped back in the car to keep exploring.
We gave up the drive to The Knob because everything was looking the same and we didn’t feel like we could really get to a nice beach so we decided to head back to camp and along the way, look for a lobster roll. We finally found a great place just off of Underpass Road that had lobster rolls, clam chowder and a great outdoor picnic area. They said we could have James out there as long as no-one complained, and who would ever complain about James!
