She walks down the pier, toward shore, past the line of big boat sterns, feeling exposed in the bright light of morning. It's still early, and there is little movement by the people who occupy these vessels. She is thankful for this small blessing. Her eyes look in the opposite direction of where any noises, lest eye contact be made. The landing is now only about twenty feet away, but it feels like miles.
