Harbor welcomes the visitor to the Defenders' Lodge, with ocean light, reflected and refracted by the waves. The sky is dappled with arctic terns, nature's most worldly travelers. The entire Earth is their home. This a place for weary wings to rest, a place of peace. This is a safe harbor.


It changes with the light. Completed July 2014 There was a helpful collaboration.
