This image was created from an inspiration of old Cape Cod and Yarmouth MA. These older dories pulled up on shore possibly never being used accept by the sea creatures that might live under them. The tall pilings standing like sentries were once moorings for larger boats. The harbor is far in from the ocean, protected from the violence of storms. I would expect that many days are peaceful with little to no activity. Many of the fishermen are private people working from their own boats to feed the family and sell some of the catch in the market.
