Saga - Day 5-Sapphires
A friend of mine used to work in a national park in the Caribbean. Among other things, she was charged with making sure people didn't remove things from the park as souvenirs. No taking shells or coral home with you. So, when she saw a tourist with a bunch of specimen bottles, she let her know that she couldn't take anything with her from the park. She was then informed that the bottles were for the water. The tourist wanted to save a little bottle of all the different blues to bring home with her. I laughed when I heard the story, but I totally get it. Today, the ocean is a brilliant sapphire blue. The water seems to glow from within, with no real change in color between the crests and troughs of the waves. That uniformity of color is unusual and mesmerizing to watch. I wish I could bottle it up.
