Celebrating the Sun

In honor of Earth Day 2010, I looked for something in my collection that seemed appropriate and this was the best I could do. “What is it?” you ask. This is a small solar panel on my sailboat “Wandering Star.” Here it is beaded with dew and just beginning to do it’s work turning sun rays into energy to power essential things like my iPod.

Sailboats, of course, are solar powered since without the sun, there would be no wind. The hull of my boat is white. But “Wandering Star” is really pretty green.
