Glowing in the afternoon sunlight an artistic sculpture graces the end of the walkway next to the entrance of Antioch Marina. The artistic structure was designed and created by Ralph J. Alexander.
The walk leading to the structure is located at the end of a park next
to Humphrey's restaurant. Humphrey's restaurant is named after the
world's most famous humpback whale. He gained his fame in 1985 by
entering San Francisco bay and swimming up the Sacramento River to Rio
Vista. News media, spectators and rescue workers followed the whale
up the delta and
eventually Humphrey made it back to the open sea. The restaurant that now bears the same name is decorated with paintings and etched glass artwork depicting whales.
