It’s rare for me to venture into this neck of the woods and it certainly wasn’t a walking expedition. In my mind, this is a seedy area that needs quick automobile getaway options. I enjoyed this view and quietly hoped to see Russell Crowe pop onto the boardwalk to take out ‘the boat’ or pick up a quick burger. With no luck, I pondered whether he was more of a Harry’s Café De Wheels man and loitered around there for a while instead. It wasn’t until I saw the security gates of the nearby naval base, where a marauding bunch of twenty-somethings clamoured at the fence waiting for the guard to let them through to the drooling sailors, that I felt sick and went home.
