Rocky Point has always been my refuge. Through junior high school and high school, I found myself wandering here. I grew up about half a mile from here, so it was a natural walk for me. I brought myself here to think, to sort things out, to stare out on the bay. A place to gain perspective.

This was a place to remove me from distractions. The park closed in the offseason, I would watch ships pass and look at my favorite quahog spot. It was quiet. Me, the occasional gull, and the tide.

Of course, I am speaking about a predecessor pier at Rocky Point. In season, people would fish here and ferries and excursion boats landed. I would catch the lines for the "Bay Queen" here as I became a part of the crew.

But today was a time to visit and reminisce with my family. And to think. To sort things out.
