The waterfront of Kodiak is alive almost year-round, but as salmon season approaches, it brings an increase in fishermen, cannery employees, workload and fish. We're on the cusp of it now. The cries of the seagulls will increase, the roars of the sea lions, all begging for a taste of summer's harvest. The forklifts grinding, back and forth, back and forth, beeping to make you aware there's more pallets to load. Our town is a fishing town, where the salt air kisses your cheeks, where the smell of fish processing is the smell of money. We're all, in some way, embedded in this way of life- the life of a fishing town.
