Eureka waterfront (#1035)

Eureka waterfront (#1035)
Along the wharf seen in the adjacent photo (#1033). In the distance is the bridge for CA-255 which crosses Humboldt Bay from Eureka to the Samoa Peninsula. The boat on the right appeared to be a former military boat converted into a private vessel. Along the wharf were a number of people who appeared to be displaced in some way, plus a couple who were permanent residents of Eureka. The couple and I talked about the boat, the sunset, and the number of displaced in the area, including a man near us who was talking to himself. I asked the couple as to why there seemed to be so many more homeless/displaced, they replied that many described themselves as “just passing through,” even though they seemed to stay in Eureka for weeks.

maybe when your homeless, "just passing through" means staying until your pushed out. and if it's for weeks the city must be taking a tolerant view of them.
