Sitting on the dock of the bay

Two fishermen at a dock in Kawaihae Harbor, Hawaii

This particular bay is Kawaihae Harbor and the dock is used by small boats for boarding and deboarding, but in the early morning, fishermen try their luck here. Despite this being the main port for the west side of the island, it’s quite tranquil at this time and also features several palm trees, which soften the otherwise industrial scene.

    We have similar popular fishing spots. The fish must be drawn to something apart from industrial waste, like warmth or a particular food source. Maybe just an old habit. The scene shows such contrasts, including how peaceful the anglers seem.

      I think the water is actually pretty clean. There are no big polluting activities here. The water is calm and probably a bit warmer than elsewhere. It’s a good spot for juvenile fish, so that is attractive for other fish that feed on them.

      Lots of containers and truck and a cement plant too, but also a scattering of palms! I like to stop by this area on my way to work in the early morning as it’s very peaceful and the light is often really nice.
