The Harbor is a place of contrasts. The unique simplicity of its purpose is a sharp departure from the complexity of the souls who live here.
As the sun, land and water converge, so do the lives of a variety of people. The fisherman, the cannery worker, the tourist, the kids playing along the breakwater, all make up a diversity that sets this place apart.
Below that scenic surface are deeper stories. Men who have escaped to the sea for the solitude and peace it provides and successful men who have prospered from it. Simply the haves and the have nots.
It is against this backdrop that peoples' lives intersect at The Harbor. They all seek it, some find peace and prosperity and some self-destruct.
These contrasts are like a glimpse of all of us, seeking much the same thing.....a place to be "safe."
