Boats in Noyo Harbor 1 day after the quake in Japan

The Tsunami reach to the northern coast of California. In Fort Bragg there is a harbor full of working fishing boats, which got knocked around a good bit, and two docks were wiped out. This town has had a lot of hard knocks in the last 15-20 years, with the end of the lumber industry, fishing much reduced or banned altogether, and gas-prices and the economy in general keeping tourists away. There are good reasons for all of these things, but you hate to see people’s livelihoods going away.
