As I look at our dropping temperatures it is nice to think of our vacation a few months ago. These photos were taken on Shelter island on the San Diego Bay.
We saw this magnificent bronze sculpture facing the Bay near all these fishing poles. I read that it was dedicated in 1988 and is a symbol of the courage and determination of the men of the tuna fleet that once operated in the Pacific from its base in the San Diego Bay. It weighs 9,000 pounds and is 21 foot tall to the tip of the fishing poles. The inscription reads: "Tunaman's Memorial honoring those that built an industry and remembering those that departed this Harbor in the sun and did not return. - Anthony Mascarenhas"
