Look Travelers is just a Statue of a Sailor, nothing special. It does symbolize the struggles of a sailor that his whole personal existence is in a sea bag, I am NAVY retired and it sucks to limit your life when you are stock on a boat to the content of a sea bag, because you have nothing else to...

A little off the beaten path, but worth the effort to view. Gives you the feel of a sailors life, sea-bag and all.
