In the morning, from the “floating houses,” the fishermen’s families returned to the mainland. They send the children to school and bring fresh seafood they caught in the night to the early market. The lagoon quickl becomes bustling with the noise of a new day with the sound of oars dipping into the water and motorboats surfing across the lagoon.

Everyone is attached and diligent in their work, passed down from generation to generation. They work in the lagoon from 3-4 pm the previous day and return to the mainland when the sun rises the next day. They might work hard, but are rewarded with the peaceful moments on the lagoon.
