Description

This photo was taken along the shoreline of Tarrafal. At the end of the day these wooden fishing vessels are dragged back on shore for storage. Here one last boat is being dry docked. Learning to successfully fish at a young age is viewed as a rite of passage due to fishing being a large part of Tarrafal's commerce.
