Gorgona might be traslated into Greek, meaning sea-maid. A wonderful picture. Much enjoyed yesterdays art.

Please have a good weekend.

I wonder how many times they have stood there looking at this scene.

Oh, yes, how many hours have we spent watching the sea. Beautiful shot. I am sure those gentlemen are solving all the world's problems as they stand there watching the sea.
