As visitors, we don’t often notice the finer details of a working community. We see painters, boaters, fishermen and shop owners, day after day, but we assume they’re here because the place is beautiful and one of a kind. We forget that they’re also working. Whether they’re selling paintings, smoking whitefish sausage or scooping ice cream, many of them have five months to earn enough money to support their families for an entire year. In the summer Fishtown swells with families and friends on vacation, but it is also full of families and friends working to preserve Fishtown for visitors, year after year.
