Nice place to visit and read about the lives that have been lost at sea. Family/friends have left notes and momentos that are interesting to read.

I stumbled upon this memorial while walking through the park. It was touching and caused me to reflect on the danger faced by those who are in the fishing industry. It was humbling to read the names and see the photos of the fishermen.

Happened upon this Memorial as I was walking through the state park. It is a very nice building, chapel like, to remember the fishermen who have lost their lives at sea.
