Hung on the walls and ceiling were rope fishing nets, with glass floats of all sizes and colors woven into them like diamonds in a bracelet. The wood-paneled room muffled the deep-throated reverberations of the ocean to a distant thud. On a nightstand stood a black-and-white photograph of a man who looked Japanese, wrapped to his neck in cloths and rubber and standing in the prow of tiny skiffs, an iron helmet and pile of abalone nearby.
