To pair the Sound Bar with a Bluetooth device: 

1. Use the BT Pair menu option from the remote (see “Adjusting Sound Bar Settings” on page 15 of the manual). When the Sound Bar is in Bluetooth Pairing Mode, the LED Indicators on the Display Panel on the front of the Sound Bar will light sequentially from left to right and back again.  (Once the device is paired, the LED Indicators will stop flashing)

2. You can now search for the Sound Bar (VIZIO S4251w) using your Bluetooth device. For more information, see the owners manual.

If you love sitting outside close to the ocean, try Bahama Bob's - Best burger around! (Just get there early!)

Recently, we dined at Cosmos due to the great ratings.  I was a little apprehensive when I saw the huge number of vehicles, but we were seated within 15 minutes and were very impressed.  GREAT food, good pprices and the atmosphere was awesome! Not too loud, not too cramped and the staff had a very relaxed demeanor.

Just a few doors down towards the West lies the hull of an old sailing vessel.  It has been covered up and uncovered numerous times over the years.  More information can be found at the links below:

The funniest part to us is the fact that the owners offered it to a museum, but were told by the government it was historical so it couldn't be touched.  Then the government later told the owners it was a hazard and had to be moved (but at the owner's expense since it was on their property).  After years of arguing, it was agreed to leave it where it was.
