Description

Exterior. In the foreground, boats are docked in the water, and a pier juts out into the far shore. On the sand, more boats have been pulled ashore and people walk amongst them. Many buildings sit on the edge of the sand, and beyond in the background are sandy hills dotted with greenery.
