Value Study II - Vinal Cove

I like this one better, just four shades of gray, yeah! The photo is from one of our sailing trips to Penobscot Bay. This is the shore of Vinal Cove in eastern Vinalhaven Island, near the backdoor entrance to Seal Bay where we moor our boat. The kids love to take a dinghy at high tide through the backdoor channel into Vinal Cove, where there is a wonderful tidal flow, and run the dinghies up and down the rapids. It is such a beautiful place!

  4. These values studies are really interesting! They're reminding me of the book _Island of the Color Blind_, by Oliver Sachs, the neurologist who also wrote _The Man Who Took His Wife for a Hat_. The Color Blind book is about an island somewhere in Polynesia where due to isolation and a genetic mutation, most of the islanders have some degree of color blindness, and a significant proportion of those are profoundly color blind - they see only black and white and shades of gray. Sachs' exploration of how this alters their culture and their world is beautifully written and fascinating.
