Wilkeson Pointe updates

My most recent visit to Wilkeson Pointe at the Outer Harbor proved fruitful, with the completion of the new water taxi landing. Upon approaching the dock we could see the Queen City Ferry as it rounded the point and pulled into the cove. For anyone who is unfamiliar with how to navigate the roadways to get to this location along the Outer Harbor, a ferry ride from Canalside is fairly quick and thoroughly enjoyable, especially if the reason for the trip is one of leisure.

There are plenty of things to see and do at Wilkeson Pointe including a visit to the wind sculpture park and walk along the beach, which brings me to the next new waterfront amenity: two sand volleyball courts. The last time that I paid a visit to the destination, the courts were still under construction. Now they beckon anyone with a volleyball to come out and play. I would think that this would be the perfect setting for a tournament, or simply a game of pick-up.
