Exploring disconsolately the margins of the museum grounds, we found a trail. Unable to resist a trail through the woods, we followed it -- and discovered a very long steep stairway going down a ravine to a West-facing beach. Polite signage informed us that though clothing was optional on the beach (a comical notion in mid-October!) it was required on the stairs. On the pleasant, rocky little beach we wandered around a bit and then sat down to watch the sunset. As we watched, a chip barge slowly made its way towards the river entrance.
