(Velvia slide film)
An ominous bank of sea fog moves over the ocean in late afternoon, casting a dark impenetrable shadow above the horizon. The moods of the sea fascinate me... and so do stories about the sea.
My favorite story about the sea was one of the first novels I ever read as a teen in Ohio... Hemingway's Old Man and The Sea. It made such an impression on me that it led me to a love of great literature, and yarns about the sea. Other favorites of mine include Treasure Island, Moby Dick, A High Wind in Jamaica, The Dark Frigate, Voyage of the Narwal, The Perfect Storm, The Wreckers, In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex, and Pirates in an Adventure with Scientists.
Hummm... maybe that's why I moved close to the sea...
Do you have any sea story favorites?
