We were in room 308 - a cozy studio with a small kitchen on one end and the sleeping area by the window. There was a balcony with a sliding glass door and screen. We kept the door open and the screen on for terrific sleeping. The room overlooks the beachfront out to the ocean. We ate out of the kitchen every day.
I found the IGA (just a few blocks away) well-stocked. Keep in mind that it's a small space and serves as a general store as well... Do you really need to have 15 ketchups to choose from during your stay...? :-). The butcher shop actually cuts its own meat (the GM's dad does this!) and the fish is super fresh and changes from day to day. Had amazing fresh oysters from the grocery!
The 4th fireworks were spectacular -- 30+ miles of beach -- as far as you can see, there wasn't a pause from 9pm until midnite! And these are not your backyard displays... big honkin beautiful expressions of fire and light. When was the last time you said "oooh, ahhh, wow" at a fireworks display. Best of all there this was a gift from local residents, without corporate sponsorship, so the sense of spontenatity and surprise, and not an attempt to match explosions to music.
