Pete's Harbor, in Redwood City, is tucked in the shadow of an 8-story pile of snowy white salt that was harvested from San Francisco Bay. This junk moored along the waterfront for several weeks stood out among the many more traditional craft.
The junk's many layers of crusty black and red enamel fit in with the rustic feel of this particular working harbor where many lived and worked on some of their boats. Other weekenders scraped and painted boats they had hoisted onto blocks on dry land. I wondered where this lone junk came from and how it got here.
