An obese, elderly sailor stands atop a fortified battlement looking out to sea through a telescope. Beside him a young woman turns to kiss a handsome young military officer as she holds up her wind-swept parasol. In front of him, at his feet, another young woman looks down at a sailor who gazes up at her with admiration. An old man shivers in the wind beside a sentry who stands with his back to the sea, smiling at the scene before him.
