"Shelter from the storm" ...Green Island - Blue Sea

In 1979 aboard the beach seiner Northern Seas, on our way from Chignik, Alaska to Seattle. The wind was howling at about 70mph and we kept dragging anchor. I had to pull it up, by hand, at least 10 times before the lighthouse keeper came down and we threw him a line attached to the chain and he "anchored" us to that huge rock on the rocky beach of Green Island.
