Of course there were pictures to be taken along the waterfront, and short breaks to admire the wildlife and views.
The ocean sculptures/artwork in the below pictures are from my elementary school back in 1993. I realized that we had made these twenty years ago! That's insane! Of course, my sea cucumber looks rather phallic, but I didn't know that when I was 9...give me a break. ;)
Let me tell you that the sun was deceiving, it was freaking cold in the shade! The runners I saw along the way were bundled in long running tights, long sleeved shirts, jackets, ear warmers, gloves and hats...and here I was in my CW-X capris and short sleeved shirt. What? I get too hot. All in all, it was a very refreshing run totaling 6.8 miles of sightseeing.
