Fisherman's Market, Caliaqua

Originally uploaded by Karlek

We used to be able to see this scene from the balcony on our house, but the plumrose tree grew up. I took this from the road behind (i.e., above) our house. The foreground is the playing field where the Windward Highway goes through Caliaqua. The buildings bounding the field are the fisherman's market and a cold storage building. The water behind that is the Careenage, where sailing ships would be careened so that the barnacles could be scraped from their hull. The land between that and the Atlantic is a point that bounds Calliaqua Bay.
