Can you see the silhouette of people in the distance? They are doing what is fondly called "walking on the rocks."
The breakwater in Leland Harbor makes for a fun "after ice cream" walk for vacationers. When you've had a lovely dinner in town, you've peeked in all the shop windows and you still can't bear to let the day end, a "walk on the rocks" is a fun way for the sure-footed to watch the sun go down over the harbor.
I used to "walk on the rocks" with my dad all the time when I was around 10 years old. A little fresh air and what seemed like a very adventurous route across the harbor made for some great memories.
Now when I look at the harbor, I see a beautiful place where time stands still.
