Sammy has been fishing from this same pier for the last fifteen years. He has seen ships come and go – large ships, small ships and all in between. He wonders where these ships go and what sort of people travel on them.

Why do some people go on journeys, yet Sammy is content to fish from the same pier for fifteen years? He could fish from another pier, but who’s to guarantee that the catch would be better ? There is more to fishing than just the catch.

Sammy likes to feel the wind on his face as he waits for that tug on his line. He likes to see the storms brewing down in the bay. Sammy enjoys the spray from the large waves as they smash on the rocks below.

And he likes to watch the big ships sail past.

Then he goes home and fries his catch.
