Red sky in the morning,
Sailors take warning,
Red sky at night,
sailor’s delight.

The origins of this old adage stretch all the way back to Matthew XVI: 2-3 in the Bible. Shakespeare also used a version of this in his play Venus and Adonis. There is a good deal of scientific evidence that supports the truth in this saying.

The north shore cliffs of Prince Edward Island sit quietly as the gentle waves of the Gulf of St. Lawrence brush against the shore.

Digital oil painting from an original photograph shot at sunset in early September 2003.*
