Here's another place that isn't really on the way to anything, but it is associated with harbor in a rather pleasant town. The building is an historic hotel. The more recent boardwalk winds along the shore and is connected at its western end to the marina visible in the background.
I've sailed within sight of this harbor, but more recently have visited by land.
You are in very close proximity to an historic waterway, which had an associated canal. If I tell you any more, I'd be giving it away.
So, what is the name of the harbor?
