An old dock still sat atop wooden pilings in the San Francisco Bay. That dock was old and falling into disrepair and eventually into the bay. An old telephone or power line still extended out to the former cabin on the former dock.

A bald eagle was perched on a stump. That stump was one of several old pilings that bordered San Francisco Bay. Eventually, at high tide, those pilings would become a boating hazard.

An old dock was covered with old decking that hung over the edge. Those decking boards could remind one of a piano, perhaps an old upright played in an old-time honky tonk bar.
