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.
