The town square is the main center of prosperity, and it goes without saying that people of all persuasions work and play together rather peacefully in this welcoming place. Rumor has it that years and years ago, magical stones played an important part in the building of the town.. a kind of 'mystical' and 'magical' beginning. Some areas are reminders of these times, and some are reminders of hippie happiness. You can almost hear whispers on the wind saying... 'Peace and happiness!' and... 'Let's be happy!' Beautiful beaches line the eastern edge, with clear, cool water that sparkles like tiny stars in the sunlight. This is a place of diversity, with the common thread of friendship binding it all together."]
