    Anyone have a location for that coast guard station? That was the one sight i wanted to see but i had some family matters to attend to

      At the ferry terminal-where Richmond Terrace turns into Bay Street, look for a wall made of red bricks ornated with iron starfish, go down towards the SI ferry terminal until you see a pointed structure, when you reach that pointed structure, turn right. Red globe barricades should indicate you are there.
