Another of the quiet attractions along the ride. This shrine is for @@@.

On one of my solo trips during a HOT summer weekend, I happened upon a newly commissioned ship, all decorated for its maiden voyage that day. They were also giving away fresh local delicacies to celebrate the occasion, but I really didn't think I needed for my backpack to smell like raw fish and seaweed for the rest of the year. A girl at the local ice cream shop told me about the goodies, then suggested impishly "Shall we go get some?" I had an ice cream with her instead.
