Fishing at Rock Harbor

The Community of Jesus is located at Rock Harbor on Cape Cod Bay. Rock Harbor is a tidal harbor, which means that fishing boats can leave or enter the harbor only within a few hours of high tide. Fishing trips can last for four hours (during high tide) or eight hours (between high tides). While we were leaving on a four-hour trip, another boat was returning from an eight-hour trip. I go fishing only once or twice a year, so I especially appreciated this water view of the Church of the Transfiguration and the Bell Tower with the angel on top. Being on the sea was a refreshing expansion of my day-to-day land-bound existence.

About Open Eyes

I moved to the Community of Jesus in 1977 with my wife and three middle-school children. Now I am 72 and my children are middle aged. I am grateful for my two grandchildren living next door. My PhD in physics led to a career in aviation safety that continues to the present, although at a reduced level of involvement. Surrounded by computers in my home office, I am also part of the team that supports the Community's computer network. I enjoy gardening, both in my yard and in the Community's vineyard. I love to see God's hand in everything around me. I teach high school chemistry for home school and am continually astounded at what God has created from less than 100 elements--the chemist's view (and only three elementary particles--the physicist's view). Although I am slowing down physically, I find God continually providing me with new challenges.
