And on the beach the white and blue canoes that came
from Nayarit were drawn up, canoes preserved for generations by a hard
shell-like waterproof plaster whose making was a secret of the fishing


The brush houses of the fishing people were back from the beach on the
right-hand side of the town


For centuries men had dived down and torn the
oysters from the beds and ripped them open, looking for the coated
grains of sand. Swarms of fish lived near the bed to live near the
oysters thrown back by the searching men and to nibble at the shining
inner shells. But the pearls were accidents, and the finding of one was
luck, a little pat on the back by God or the gods or both.
