Here, in 1961, a sailor could roam for weeks on end, dropping anchor each night in a perfect harbor, seldom seeing a human face. The sea was wild with color from horizon to horizon, like a stained-glass window. The colors of the water changed constantly. Over deep channels, the water was deep greenish-blue like the open ocean.
