Some of us locals have been cruising The Strand six we could sip up in a car. I enjoy it anytime of the year. The beach is full of surf camps and kids as well as families camping out for a long sunny day. You can't get more picturesque that having the Pier as your backdrop. The present Pier is the latest rendition of our first Pier that was finished before we incorporated as a city in 1888. Enjoy the cruise which is just blocks from the 101 Cafe.
