Tin Foil

I love it when the ocean looks like tin foil, or "silver paper" as my grandmother used to say.

A calm clear morning on the ocean makes the possibilities seem endless. Is today meant for beach combing? Cooking fish on an outdoor grill (remember my pineapple relish)? Getting lost in a few chapters of a book?

If I am lucky, the answer is all of the above.

I've never thought of tin foil before but you are right; looking at this photo, the ocean is indeed reminiscent of foil.
My grandmother always used to say of our city lights twinkling in the dark when viewed from one of our hilltop lookouts as "jewels on black velvet". I think of the stars like that too.
Happy St Paddy's Day Anne! (Not that I'm Irish).

Thank you! I love the phrase of jewels on black velvet. I used to live on a hill and the lights twinkling below reminded me of hollywood.
