Rays of the setting sun fall on boats in a harbor, rowboats & sailboats, where several men are trying to bring a boat onto shore. Several figures sit on boxes and various packages, as though waiting to get on a boat. Handsome stone buildings are seen at left, ruins of a tower at right. (Virginia K. Anderson 12/10/93)
